      The title of this recipe should be something more like "Amazing" or "Spectacular" (oh wait, it's not Spider-Man). I don't know. But "Great" is not a strong enough word! Loved the oregano and cayenne coupled with the juicy pear! Very different from what I typically think of when discussing a Monte Cristo, but so very good! I used homemade white bread, honey dijon and baby mixed greens...and a bit of butter in the pan :)

      Holy monte cristo! This was such a yummy treat and made for a quick dinner. I loved the seasoning for the turkey (I used chicken breasts pounded thin), which provided a good flavor base for his monte cristo. Then add the flavors and textures of pear (yum), Dijon mustard, spinach and swiss cheese...Wow. Delish. Thank you, Andi! Made during ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.

      I love to count! I mean I love the Count Monte Cristo Sandwich. Ok, no count, but a great sandwich. Had to use chicken breasts pounded thin - no turkey available. Made for ZWT7, Count Dracula and his Hot Bites.
