Monte Cristo Sandwich

I have a young Kuwaiti friend who told me she used to LOVE Monte Cristo sandwiches until she learned they had ham in them, and then she couldn’t eat them anymore. I wonder if they would taste OK made with turkey ham? This is today’s recipe from; my sweet daughter-in-law got me started and now they send me recipes with pictures every day!


Monte Cristo Sandwich


2 slices bread
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
2 slices cooked ham (turkey ham 🙂 )
2 slices cooked turkey meat
1 slice Swiss cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Spread bread with mayonnaise and mustard. Alternate ham, Swiss and turkey slices on bread.
Beat egg and milk in a small bowl. Coat the sandwich with the egg and milk mixture. Heat a greased skillet over medium heat, brown the sandwich on both sides. Serve hot.

  4. LLOOL, KTDP, that’s fine if you are in France, but in the US, Monte Cristo is about as close as you get.

    Ansam – YOU can make it yourself! You are a talented and creative cook!
