Monte Cristo Sandwich

A delicious hybrid of french toast with grilled ham and cheese. It’s great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

I recently posted about french toast and how much Cole loves the stuff. He’s also a big fan of ham and cheese sandwiches, so it was only natural that I make him a combination of the two. I remember as a kid my favourite thing to order at a restaurant was a Monte Cristo sandwich. I was excited to try making them for lunch one day. As I had hoped, Cole went crazy for them!

I don’t really have a recipe for this. Basically you just make a ham and cheese sandwich. Here’s the ham I use; Natural Selections by Maple Leaf:

I love that it’s natural, without the preservatives and chemicals that are often in regular deli meat. So then I dip it in beaten eggs, and grill it. I like to use my double-sided indoor grill to make it almost like a panini. So there you go; it’s a ham and cheese french toast panini. Whatever you want to call it, it’s yummy!
