Monte Cristo Sandwiches
- 8 slices of white bread (Italian or sourdough)
- 8 slices Swiss cheese
- 8 slices cheddar cheese
- 8 slices honey ham
- 8 slices prosciutto
- 8 tbsp butter
- 1.5 tbsp mayo
- 1.5 tbsp Dijon mustard
Start off by cracking your eggs in a bowl, whisk them until smooth, but not foamy. Next, season them with salt and pepper, set them aside for now.
Now let’s assemble the sandwiches! On one side of the bread add mayo, on the other piece of bread add Dijon mustard. Spread those really well.
Now, on the mayo side add, 2 Swiss cheese, 2 slices honey ham, 2 slices prosciutto, 2 slices cheddar cheese and finally place the top of slice of bread.
In a shallow baking sheet add your whisked eggs, this will make it a lot easier for you to dip the bread in. Now dip all of your sandwiches one at a time. Once they are nicely covered in egg, preheat your griddle to 350.
Add 4 tbsp of butter. Once melted, add the sandwiches to the griddle, flip after one minute. Add more butter as needed.
Flip and check to make sure the egg isn’t getting too dark, once it’s a nice golden color, turn the heat to low and let the cheese melt the rest of the way.
Once the cheese is fully melted, remove the sandwiches from the griddle and sprinkle on powdered sugar. Let rest for 3 min before serving.
You can use any cheese of your choice as well as any deli meat. You can also serve them with syrup or jam.
