Do you love a good sandwich? Hate having to drag out every item in your fridge to make that sandwich? Like being able to impress your friends and family with a killer sandwich? Today I have this easy six ingredient Monte Cristo Sandwich recipe for you.
I had my first Monte Cristo Sandwich at my all time favorite theme park. It was battered and deep fried and was amazing. I don’t like to deep fry foods because I think it stinks up my house. I had to come up with an easy alternative to get that same taste at home and one that anyone could create! We all know how to make french toast so I took that technique and adapted it just a bit to make this delicious sandwich.
Another thing I know when cooking and baking is you need to use the best ingredients available. I love that I can find pretty much any ingredient I need at my local Walmart and the ingredients for this sandwich are readily available at any Walmart.
I love a good loaf of bread and Pepperidge Farm® always delivers a fantastic loaf of bread from Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse™ Hearty White to Farmhouse Oatmeal they all are so good! I personally love Farmhouse Hearty White it has great taste and has great body to support this recipe. I also love Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham it contains no artificial flavors, no by-products which gives it great flavor. Of course you need a great mayonnaise to “glue” all the insides together so I choose Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise.
Ok are you ready to see how to make these Monte Cristo Sandwiches? Basically you’re going to make a sandwich using Farmhouse® Hearty White bread, Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham, Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise and sliced cheese of your choice. I used a Havarti because that is what I had in my fridge.
Make your pancake batter and pour into a shallow dish, I used my 9×7 glass baking dish and it was perfect.
Carefully take your sandwich and place it in the batter. Do not immerse the sandwich in the batter you just want to coat the top and bottom of the bread.
I used my non stick griddle pan and use cooking spray to ensure the sandwich would not stick to the pan. Grill each side until golden brown.
Serve with raspberry jam and of course a dusting of powdered sugar.
