monte cristo sandwich

Name: Jennifer Miller
Base: Falls Church
Recipe: 8 slices bread (I use challah) 4 teaspoons honey dijon mustard 8 slices thin deli sliced swiss cheese 8 slices thin deli ham 8 slices thin deli sliced turkey (I like smoked) 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons flour 1 tablespoon melted butter 1⁄4 teaspoon salt 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper 2 tablespoons milk (low fat to try to keep it low in fat!) powdered sugar, for dusting raspberry preserves, for dipping DIRECTIONS Heat oven to 425°F. Lightly butter a baking sheet pan. I use the spray. Spread 1/2 teaspoon mustard on each slice of bread. Layer between mustard sides of two slices of bread, 1 slice cheese, 2 slices ham, 2 slices turkey, and another slice of cheese. Repeat to make four sandwiches. Whisk eggs, flour, butter, salt and pepper in a shallow dish until smooth. Blend in milk. DIP both sides of sandwiches into egg mixture until bread is lightly soaked. Place on baking sheet; drizzle any remaining egg mixture over top of sandwiches. Bake 8-10 minutes until bottom is golden brown. Turn with wide spatula and continue baking 8-10 minutes or until second side is golden brown. Serve warm dusted with powdered sugar and dip or spread raspberry preserves on sandwiches. Garnish with fresh raspberries.
