Recipe Ingredients for Thanksgiving Brunch Monte Cristo Sandwiches

684 gram bread
16 tbsp. butter, softened
6 oz. ham
6 oz. turkey
12 oz. Swiss or Gruyere cheese
3 eggs
1/3 cup non-fat milk
1/8 tsp. salt

Recipe Directions for Thanksgiving Brunch Monte Cristo Sandwiches

  1. Preparation:

  2. For each sandwich use 3 slices of bread. Butter one side of bread first, then cover with a slice of ham and a slice of turkey. Butter both sides of the second slice of bread. Place on top of turkey or ham slice and top with 2 slices of cheese. Butter third slice for top; press sandwich lightly and trim crusts. (This helps to pinch and seal the ends.) Repeat to make 6 sandwiches.

  3. Wrap the sandwiches individually and tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 6 hours. (Wrapping the sandwich in plastic wrap compacts it, and prevents the egg batter from seeping in.)

  4. Whisk eggs, salt and milk in a shallow dish until smooth. DIP both sides of sandwiches into egg mixture until bread is lightly soaked. Place on lightly buttered or sprayed baking sheet; drizzle any remaining egg mixture over top of sandwiches. Bake 8-10 minutes at 425 degrees until bottom is golden brown. Turn with wide spatula and continue baking 8-10 minutes or until second side is golden brown. Cut into halves diagonally.

  5. To serve, see note above.
