Tasty Thursdays: Monte Cristo Sandwich

Thursday, April 14, 2011

I think this would be perfect & so easy to make for lunch (or even breakfast)! This recipe comes from Real Simple, and it looks so mouthwatering good!

Ingredients: (recipe serves 4)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 6-count boxes frozen French toast
  • 1 9-ounce package thinly sliced ham
  • 1 9-ounce package thinly sliced turkey
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 400° F.
2. Spread the mustard on 6 pieces of the French toast. Divide the ham and turkey evenly among them and top each with 2 slices of the cheese.
3. Spread the remaining 6 pieces of French toast with the mayonnaise (if desired) and sandwich together.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread ½ tablespoon of the butter on the top and bottom of each sandwich.
5. Cook 3 sandwiches in the skillet until brown, 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
6. Transfer to oven and bake until the cheese is melted and the toast is heated through, about 4 minutes.

I'm pretty sure it'll taste as great if you just toast the bread & add the ingredients (for the people who prefer to do it even quicker, like me)!

This looks yummy, and I think just toasting the bread is also a good way to cut a few calories. Monte Cristos are usually pretty unhealthy, but this looks like a healthier recipe than many I've seen. Thanks for sharing!
