4 (1-ounce) slices white bread
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 ounces (1/4 inch-thick) sliced deli turkey
2 ounces reduced-fat Swiss cheese or Jarlsberg cheese, thinly sliced
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Cooking spray
