We loved this sandwich! We used cooked turkey, and omitted the salsa. My DH also brought out the powdered sugar used in the traditional Monte Cristos. Thanks, Sharon123! Made for Aussie/New Zealand Swap #18.

Loved this, didn't do the fruit thing because I wanted a faster prep. meal. This is just that, and different+tasty besides. Gonna make this again really soon.

I haven't made this yet but my family has, using sliced chicken, They are are avacado growers and say it was a great way to diversify use of their avacados, and always appreciate that! The only change they would make is not to do a standard monte cristo dipped in eggs and would lightly butter outside of each slice of bread and cook like grilled cheese sandwiches. I'm sure they are great both ways!

This was like something you would find on a menu in a cafe...really unique and full of flavor. Very easy to prepare, nice looking too. Delicious. Next time, I will skip the salsa on the side as it wasn't necessary, the sandwich holds it own without a dip.

This was good. I really love avocados so I think next time I will make it with just the avocados and nothing else (maybe just cheese). I think the other ingredients kind of stole the flavor from the avocados, but I would definitely make it again! Thanks!

Very tasty sandwiches! The combination of ingredients was very pleasing, and made a unique sandwich. I made them as directed, substituting Muenster cheese. I took my sandwich "out of the lineup" and only grilled it in butter, as I am not a big egg fan. Thank you for sharing this!

Sharon, these are delicious. From the list of ingredients, I expected to really like this recipe - and I sure did - however, I was surprised at how much my BH did, as well! Thanks for sharing. I'll be fixing these again soon.

I used chicken from a store bought roasted chicken, regular muenster cheese and I added some canned green chilies to the mayonnaise for a bit of heat. The sandwiches turned out just perfect. Deserves every star plus more
