Monte Cristo Recipes: How to Make a Classic Monte Cristo Sandwich

A Monte Cristo sandwich is basically a ham and cheese sandwich that is pan-fried in butter. What's not to love? You could also use a little deli turkey breast in place of the ham – or use both! If you want to reduce the carbs, use only two slices of bread per sandwich. Monte Cristo sandwiches are sometimes served with strawberry jelly

You'll need:

  • 6 slices white bread 
  • Swiss cheese
  • deli ham
  • mayonnaise
  • yellow mustard
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons butter
  • powdered sugar (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Spread mayonnaise on two slices of the bread. Top with a slice of cheese and a couple pieces of ham. 
  2. Add the second slice of bread. Top with mustard. Add a couple slices of ham and another slice of cheese. Finish with the third slice of bread on top. 
  3. Press the sandwich gently to flatten a bit. Carefully cut off the crusts (this helps seal the sandwich for frying).
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Cook the sandwiches about 4-5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve.
