Cook on a fry pan on medium low until browned. The sandwich may be so tall that you may have to use a spatula to put pressure on the top to flatten it a little bit.

Once the underside is golden, flip it to the other side. Repeat the process. Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with a line of jam.
