One of my sons could not get past the Monte Cristo sandwich at the Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland. I made this casserole for him and he loved it. I hope you do to.

Oh my gosh, what a great casserole. My husband and I are both Disney fanatics and love the Monte Cristo at the Blue Bayou. This is the closest I have ever found to the real thing! Thanks for sharing this recipe. This will definitely be used in our house!

Everyone loved this casserole! I think when I make it again I will try making a sauce with red raspberries though...for some reason I associate that more with Monte Cristos than strawberries. I left out the parsley. Thanks for the recipe!

Exceptional! Everyone in the house was taken by surprise by this divine sweet-and-savory combination. I didn't even have swiss on hand, but cheddar was a delight. I also combined all of the ingredients in one bowl, as layering was unnecessary. Finally, I dusted each serving with powdered sugar, skipping the topping in favor of strawberry jam (squeezable). The entire dish is already gone! Try this one, it's a winner.
