Monte Christo Sandwiches



·         6 eggs

·         1/4 cup heavy cream

·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract

·         2 tablespoons sugar

·         1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

·         1 teaspoon salt

·         8 slices white bread

·         8 slices Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

·         1/2 pound ham, thinly sliced

·         1/2 pound turkey, thinly sliced

·         4 tablespoons butter

Cranberry Syrup:

·         1 (16-ounce) can cranberry sauce

·         1/4 cup maple syrup

·         1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

·         1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and salt and set aside.

Lay the 8 slices of bread out on a flat surface. Lay 1 slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Then on 4 slices of the bread lay 1 slice of ham. On the other 4 slices lay 1 slice of turkey. Top all 8 slices with 1 slice of Swiss. Make 4 sandwiches and coat with egg mixture.

*Cook's Note: You may add more Swiss, turkey or ham, if desired

In a large skillet over medium-heat melt the butter.

Add the sandwiches to the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.

Remove the sandwiches to a sheet pan and place in the oven. Bake until the cheese has melted and the sandwiches are warm throughout, about 5 minutes.

Cranberry Syrup:

In a large bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth.

Cut the sandwiches into quarters and serve with the cranberry syrup.

I had something smialir happen to me about a week ago when I was in a bookstore, and heard an assistant being sent in my direction with the instructions, See if the lady over there needs any help. I also seem to have lots of people think I'm a girl at my workplace an old folks' home (oddly enough, quite a few of the people who've thought me a woman have been visitors, while some of the really bad dementia cases have never failed to get my sex right). All in all, I don't really care it just means I'm pretty.
