Monte Cristo Folds

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mailbelle

I love the classic Monte Cristo that Bennigan's serves with red raspberry preserves for dipping; but sadly, our Bennigan's recently closed. This is a variation from the 2002 Pillsbury Bake-Off using Grands buttermilk biscuits and baked instead of fried.

These are great and every bit as tasty as the 'real thing!' I too was missing Bennigan's...decided to make these on a whim. Used deli meats and a chunk of Swiss all whizzed in the food processor. Even used store brand flaky biscuits and they turned out a treat. (And look pretty, too.) Thumbs up!
