A great brunch item! One of my husbands favorite filling, baked, french toast style, sandwiches filled with cheese, ham, turkey & mustard. Raspberry preserves is a must for him. Could be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is a LESSER FAT Monte Cristo recipe being baked and not fried full of flavor! I also like to buy the low salt cold cuts or use fresh baked turkey leftovers sliced thin.
These are delicious! the following ingredients are for 6 sandwiches. Make certain to use a firm bread like Italian, pumpernickle or rye, the regular soft sliced sandwich bread will not hold up well to this.
This one is for the kids or the young at heart. It's not really meant to be eaten. More like something fun for Halloween or just to hear the kids yell "Ewww, GROSS!" You could use it for your Halloween haunted house etc. Just blindfold someone and let them feel this. (Makes good "eyeballs") Posted as a request.
The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.
A lovely spicy, peanuty sauce over spaghetti noodles and vegetables. I really prefer natural peanut butter in this, but that is up to you. Altering the peanut butter and honey can dramatically change this dish, so if you don't like it one way, try it again altering some ingredients.
This is my kids' favorite meal. And it's so easy to prepare, that they often do it themselves! It's very cheesy! I've also made this and cooked it in the microwave during the summer. Freezing instructions included. If you prefer, you may sub in ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
Use this as a guide to make as many sandwiches as you like. I know many people know how to make this easy sandwich but this is a lot how my great grandmother made them and oddly enough the lettuce seems to really make it taste better, especially not just putting it on top of your sandwich. Anyways a new cook may not know this easy meal yet and I didn't see one exactly like this in the database.
We enjoy these for a quick lunch for the kids and they just love them. You can experiment with a variety of toppings or set everything out and let the kids dive in and top their own. They will have a great time. We usually just make them as instructed below and they are delicious. My husband also makes this on leftover hamburger or kaiser buns instead of the bagel.
