Foodie Friday: Monte Cristo!

foodiefridaylogo2So last week we made epic grilled cheese sandwiches, today we go Monte Cristo and yes they were fantastic.

Christmas at my house includes a ham and sometimes a turkey so these make the best leftover sandwiches.  Think ham and turkey sandwich with mellty cheese between two pieces of french toast.  nom nom nom….

What You Need:

  • Bread – I typically go with a nice country while but Texas toast is good as is challah or brioche.
  • Eggs – 1 per sandwich depending on the size
  • Heavy Cream or milk
  • Optional Nutmeg and/or Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Turkey – enough to make your sandwich – you know how much you like figure it out
  • Ham – same as the turkey
  • Swiss Cheese couple slices per sandwich
  • American Cheese – same as swiss
  • Fruit spread/jelly

What You Do:

  • Put your sandwiches together – Bread – Cheese – Ham – Turkey – Cheese – Bread – Sounds simple doesn’t it!
  • Some people like to cut off the crust.
  • Press sandwich together a little with hands or wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let sit in fridge for an hour or longer
  • Mix eggs, heavy cream/milk in a bowl include nutmeg or cinnamon if using
  • Melt some butter in your skillet on medium to medium high heat.
  • Using your and put the sandwich into the egg/milk batter and place onto hot skillet
  • Grill until golden brown and flip to brown the other side – you may want to put a lid on skillet to help melt the cheese and heat the inside of the sandwich
  • Serve with fruit spread/jelly another favorite it to dust with powdered sugar
