I love monte cristos but tend to forget about them in menu planning. They are easy to make so I don't know why. I used to make them often when my young daughter swore off all things "breakfasty". I was happy to see your recipe as we are on the World Tour Event. I did use one whole egg instead of the two egg whites. Needless to say we enjoyed our sandwiches. Thank you!
