Monte Cristo Sandwich


Think of this sandwich much like a French Toast Sandwich but with a whole new twist to your Thanksgiving Leftovers!


¼ cup milk
2 eggs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
4 pieces thinly sliced white bread
4 thin slices cooked turkey
4 thin slices cooked ham
4 thin slices Swiss cheese
Confectioners’ sugar, to garnish
Red currant jelly or tomato slices, for serving


1. Lightly beat milk and eggs in a shallow bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. For each sandwich, lightly butter 2 slices of bread on both sides (using about ½ tbsp. of butter for each sandwich). Place 2 slices each of turkey and ham and cheese between 2 slices of bread. Trim crusts (optional), secure with toothpicks, and cut in half on the diagonal.

2. Melt 2 tbsp. butter in a 12″ nonstick skillet over medium heat. Dip sandwich halves in milk and egg mixture to coat. When butter foams, place sandwiches in skillet and fry until golden brown on bottom, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 2 tbsp. butter to skillet, turn sandwiches, and fry until browned on other side, about 2 minutes more. Transfer to plates, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, and serve with jelly or tomato slices!
