Monte Cristos

feeling very spoiled... Spent Another great day watching General Conference and then was served Homemade Monte Cristos (dinner) in bed by my favorite boyfriend...

Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich, a variation of the French croque-monsieur and is Rumored to have first been served in Los Angeles in the 1950s, the Monte Cristo sandwich is still a staple on the lunch menu at Disneyland Blue Bayou Restaurant. 

Ingredients to make 3 Sandwiches...
9 slices of sturdy white bread
3 slices deli thick sliced turkey
3 slices deli thick sliced ham
3 slices of American or Cheddar cheese

3 slices of Swiss Cheese

For Batter...
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Vegetable oil for frying

  1. Place turkey and Swiss cheese on one slice of bread and ham and American cheese on another slice of bread.
  2. Place third slice in-between and secure the triple-decker sandwich in the corners with tooth picks.
  3. Place egg in mixing bowl, add water and beat together. Add salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder. Beat batter until smooth.
  4. Dip sandwich in batter and carefully cover all the sides and surface. Carefully place in hot oil and fry until golden. When sandwich has turned a warm gold color remove from hot oil and place on paper towel.
  5. Let cool for a few minutes before removing the tooth picks. Before serving slice into fourths and sprinkle with powder sugar. Serve with Grape or Red Current jam.
