Monte Cristo Sandwich Recipe



2 tablespoons Dijon (or French) mustard

8 thick slices of cold french toast

8 slices thinly sliced ham

8 slices thinly sliced turkey (chicken can be used instead)

8 slices Swiss cheese (mozzarella or cheddar can be used instead)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)

5 tablespoons butter, at room temperature



  • Spread the mustard on 4 pieces of the French toast. Divide the ham and turkey evenly among them and top each with 2 slices of the cheese
  • Spread the remaining 4 slices of French toast with the mayonnaise (if desired) and sandwich together
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread ½ tablespoon of the butter on the top and bottom of each sandwich
  • Cook 4 sandwiches in the skillet until brown, 2 minutes per side
  •  Lower the heat and cook for another few minutes each side or bake on a baking sheet in an oven until the cheese is melted – about 4 minutes

A really decadent sandwich - crispy, creamy, and gooey…soooo satisfying
