Recipe by Sharon123

Delicious! Bread, dipped in egg, with slices of avocado, made like a grilled cheese sandwich. I got this recipe somewhere on the internet.

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.
