Monte Cristo Sandwich. Sort of a French Toast with Ham & Cheese. Reminds me of my years on the cruise ships. Everybody ordered one in those days. Oh so sophisticated......
Hard to find these days. I had one for lunch today at Wilder Nest Cafe. It was an interpretation of a Monte Cristo with Chicken and Basil. Very good, but not available GF. Victoria was with me and I promised to make her an original, gluten free Monte Cristo for dinner.
Very simple to make, I used GF PATISSERIE'S sandwich bread, soaked the bread in my egg and cream batter, filled it with swiss cheese and ham, pan fried in plenty of butter, served with Strawberry Jam and sprinkled with icing sugar.
Victoria: "No wonder this did not make it out of the 80's....."
It's not for everyone I guess. But easy enough to try for yourself.
