Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

15 minutes
Makes 2 sandwiches

Powdered-sugar-coated Monte Cristo sandwiches are traditionally made with slices of turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese with currant jelly to spoon over as they are eaten. A beautiful, special treat for brunch.


4 slices bread
4 sandwich-size slices Swiss cheese, 1/8 inch thick
2 slices cooked ham, 1/8 to ¼ inch thick
2 slices cooked turkey, 1/8 to ¼ inch thick
1 egg, sightly beaten
2 Tbs. half-and-half (light cream) or milk
Dash salt
2-4 Tbs. butter or margarine
Powdered sugar
Currant jelly


Spread one side of each bread slice with a thin coating of mayonnaise. On two of the bread slices, place 2 slices cheese and 1 slice each ham and turkey; top with remaining bread slices, mayonnaise side down. Trim crusts and filling to make edges even, if you like. Cut each sandwich in half.
Beat egg with half-and-half and salt, then dip sandwiches into egg mixture. Melt butter in a wide frying pan over medium-high heat; add sandwiches and toast on both sides until cheese melts. Dust with powdered sugar, garnish with parsley, and serve hot with currant jelly to spoon over.
