    diner524's Note:

    The Monte Cristo is a variation of the French croque-monsieur. I love monte cristo sandwiches that I have eaten at restaurants and found this recipe for it online but switched the jelly!!

      This was a hit. I used dinner rolls that I had left over. I also didn't make the jelly sauce because I did not have any raspberry jelly, but I have had them with that before and it really is what takes it over the top. Love the warm creamy cheese, yum. At first I thought the batter might be too runny but it was just fine. I left out the food coloring as I was just making it for us. YUM!
