Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

Worth the little bit of work that goes into it. Make sure you put plenty of the sauce on the plate when you serve it, it really adds to the sandwich.

This was okay. The only think I have to compare it to is the Bennigans Monte Cristo, and while it had sort of the same taste, it was not the same texture. It was kinda soft and bland. I did happen to have some Raspberry Preserves so I ate it with that and that helped a lot, but, I don't think I would make again. - Also, I double the recipe and it was more than enough cheese sauce, so perhaps you dont have to exactly double the sauce.
