This is the ultimate make at home Monte Cristo Sandwich, with ham and cheese that is cooked french toast style. Can be served with powdered sugar and jam. A delicious sweet and savory combo that will wake up your taste buds!
There are many versions out there, but this is how I make mine.
White bread or Brioche for a little more decadent sliced deli ham or turkey or both sliced swiss cheese (or your favorite cheese will do) 2 tbsp mayonnaise 1 tsp dijon mustard jam (raspberry, strawberry, I used red plum for the video) custard ratio: 1 egg with 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%) pinch of salt and pepper butter Instructions Blend the mayo and mustard. Take 3 slices of bread and spread the mayo and mustard mixture on 2 slices. Spread a thin layer of jam on 1 slice. Place a slice of cheese one each piece of bread. Place ham or turkey on 2 slices of bread. Then stack the bread with the mayo pieces on each end and the jam piece in the middle. Mix egg and milk together with a pinch of salt and pepper. Dip the sandwich in the egg custard. Melt a couple tbsp of butter in a skillet and then place the dipped sandwich into the hot skillet. Cook a couple minutes on each side until golden brown and egg is cooked through.
