Monte Christo Sandwich

Hello all!  This is a quick and easy recipe that I thought I would share.  There’s not a lot of fancy pictures as I quickly thought to take a picture before I dove right in.  You can have a quick tasty breakfast sandwich using a few ingredients in just a matter of minutes.  Here’s what you will need:

Ingredients:

  • Bread (white, wheat, Texas toast. (The better the bread- the better the sandwich)
  • Sliced ham
  • Mayonnaise
  • Tomato
  • Cheese (The original recipe calls for Gruyere cheese, I used Monterey Jack.  But any light cheese will do)
  • Butter
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Powdered Sugar

Start by slicing your tomato and adding it to a greased pan and cook till tender about 2-3 minutes. Put mayonnaise on both sides of your bread, add your cheese and top with ham.  This is where I close the sandwich and butter one side of the bread.  Once buttered, put the butter side in to the egg mixture to coat.  While the butter side is soaking, butter the other side and turn over in the egg mixture.  Place sandwich into a hot butter pan and grill each side  2-3 minutes or until toasted.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.  You can also serve with a side of your favorite jam.  This is a tasty sandwich which is always a hit.
