Monte Cristo Sandwiches were requested by my Mom one weekend. The only times I’ve had Monte Cristo sandwiches were in restaurants. I haven’t had one in a long time AND I’ve never made one, so I excitedly took on the challenge!
Read on for the recipe!
Monte Cristo Sandwich Recipe
6 slices of bread
6 slices of cheese (I used Eden Slices)
6 slices of cooked ham (I used Christmas Ham)
1/2 cup milk
Let’s get started!
1. Lay out 6 slices of bread and spread with mayonnaise. Top each slice with 1 slice of cheese and 1 slice of ham each. Get one slice of bread then, and flip it onto another piece. You’ll end up with 3 thick sandwiches. Set aside.
2. Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl. Set aside.
3. Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat. Get one sandwich and dip it in the egg batter, coating it evenly. Gently place on the pan, fry, turning once until golden brown. This will take about 4-6 minutes per sandwich.
4. Cut the Monte Cristo in half diagonally, then transfer to a serving plate. Serve hot.
Ready to eat!
