Classic Monte Cristo Sandwiches
- COOK TIME
- 15 Min
Don't pass on the powdered sugar and strawberry preserves. They lend a pleasant and traditional sweetness to these otherwise savory batter-fried sandwiches.
What You'll Need:
teaspoon prepared mustard
6 slices sandwich bread, trimmed
3 slices cooked turkey
3 slices cooked ham
3 slices Swiss cheese
1 large egg, lightly beaten
cup pancake mix
3 tablespoons butter
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)
Strawberry preserves (optional)
What To Do:
- Combine mayonnaise and mustard; spread on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 1 slice each of turkey, ham, and cheese on 3 bread slices. Top with remaining bread. Cut each sandwich in half diagonally, and secure with wooden toothpicks.
- Combine egg and milk in a shallow dish. Add pancake mix, stirring until blended. Dip each sandwich into batter.
- Melt butter in a large heavy skillet, griddle, or electric skillet; add sandwiches, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until light golden. If desired, serve with powdered sugar and strawberry preserves
