Monte Cristo Sandwiches ~ Soups, Salads, Casseroles & More

So you’ve probably noticed that we have been experimenting with our look and layout here at OuR KrAzY KiTcHeN. We hope you like our new look!

MONTE CRISTO SANDWICHES

2-3 tablespoons butter

powdered sugar

for each sandwich you will need:

2 slices thick Potato bread

1 slice roasted turkey

1 slice swiss cheese

1 slice smoked or baked ham

BATTER (enough for 2 sandwiches)

1/2 cup milk

1 JUMBO egg

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup self rising flour

  • Assemble sandwiches with the cheese between the 2 pieces of meat.
  • Cut into halves or quarters.
  • Whisk together the milk and egg. Add the seasonings. Add the flour last.
  • Melt butter on griddle.
  • Dip each sandwich piece in batter coating well.
  • Fry each sandwich until crisp. Make sure to turn onto each side and edge to grill batter well.
  • Cool on paper towels.
  • Dust with powdered sugar.
  • Serve with fresh raspberry jam.
Half the battle of making this sandwich is finding a good quality and tasty turkey and ham. The other half is actually using your fingers to dip the sandwich pieces in the batter.

RASPBERRY JAM

8 cups raspberries

6 cups sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon orange peel

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 package unflavored gelatin

  • Bring to a full rolling boil – stirring constantly. Let boil 1 full minute.
  • Remove from heat and stir in gelatin.
  • Skim any foam.
  • Pour into sterilized jars.

Monte Christo’s have always been one of my favorite sammies…although I only have them every few years or so! They’re so rich…but totally delicious 😀

I’ve never been brave enough to try these sandwiches, but I’ll have to after looking at this.

I might be interested in hosting this meme :).
