Monte Cristo




I can’t decide if this is dinner or brunch sandwich? I mean it is like a grilled cheese but then again it is like French Toast. Therefore, I am going to serve this for brunch on several occasions.

Lay out the bread onto a board and spread mayonnaise out the sandwich.


Top each sandwich with a slice of Gouda and a slice of turkey or ham.


Top a third piece of bread onto one top of the bread.

Place the other stack of the sandwich on top of the two slices of bread with the cheese side down.

That is an impressive sandwich!!!

Carefully remove the crust and wrap the sandwich to refrigerate for at least thirty minutes. We are trying to seal the sandwich because you are going to dip it into an egg batter. 

 

Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl.

 
Meanwhile, heat the oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Unwrap the sandwich and dip it in the egg batter, to coat evenly.

Carefully place the sandwich in the sauté pan and cook until golden brown about five minutes.

Turn and cook the other side for another five minutes.
 
 
Place on a plate and cut in half, diagonally and sprinkle with confectionary sugar. I place some jam on the side and serve it immediately.
