Absolutely fantastic! I believe this is the best Monte Cristo I have ever eaten. We loved the addition of the raspberry perserves...great contrast to the gouda, ham and turkey. I only used a couple of pinches of the cayenne which worked beautifully for us. Thank you so much for this "keeper", Charmie777.
Definite winner here! The best Monte Cristo I've ever had! Seriously good stuff here. I totatlly enjoyed the sweet and salty combination and the kicked up raspberry perserves, oh yumo! Good luck in the contest! I will keep this one handy and make it again and again. ~V
A wonderful and tasty sandwich that is worth the extra calories once in awhile. The combination of ingredients is delicious. Good luck!
Made for RSC11 2008. This is my second recipe for a Monte Cristo sandwich. We enjoyed this very much. I loved the rasberry preserves mixed with the ham and turkey. DELISH! DH is not a huge cheese fan and he enjoyed this sandwich as well. We both liked it the 2nd time around using a swiss cheese over the Gouda cheese flavor (personal preference). It is a quick and easy put together lunch or dinner that is not the same old same old. WIll make this again and feel good about serving it to company now that I have the flipping down pat. (ist time I messed up my sandwich ) Thank you.
5 Stars! Oh my word- This was out of this world! I've always wanted to try a monte cristo but would never allow myself. This was the perfect opportunity and it was worth every single calorie. The creamy gouda with the salty ham and then the raspberry to dip- YUM. You have created a winner here!
This was a great sandwich and loved by all in our house! The combination of the meats with the yummy Gouda and kicked up raspberry sauce was wonderful!
2 Stars - These sandwiches were of mixed review at our house. No one liked the flavor of the Gouda cheese on them; definitely a personal preference issue. On the other hand, the cayenne pepper added to the preserves was fabulous and will definitely be repeated. We used sourdough bread & it held up nicely without becoming soggy. Made, enjoyed & reviewed for RSC#11, January 2008.
