Found on the Betty Crocker site. The "bread" for these sandwiches actually bakes around the ham, turkey and cheese filling!

It was good, but I thought the crust was too dry. I'd like to make it again but next time I'll try using 2 eggs and increasing the milk to 1 cup.
It has been a while since I cooked a dinner that there were no complaints about. This was fabulous. My kids and hubby loved it. We had it for dinner with a big garden salad. I baked it in my round 9 inch cast iron skillet and served it in "pie" wedges. I haven't tasted the one leftover piece, but I'm thinking it would be good cold and packed in a lunch box.
Although not quite as good as the Monte Cristo sandwiches at a local pub, this does have a great flavor. Hubby ate 3 pieces! I do recommend following the recipe exactly and using all-fruit spread. I used fruit preserves that I had on hand; they were a little watery after baking. This was my mistake, though...no fault of the recipe. We served these with fresh tossed salad and large glasses of milk. Yum! I like a little extra jam to slather on each bite!
