Monte Cristo Sandwiches

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LAURIE

A meal in a "french toast" sandwich...Not grilled in butter like the traditional Monte Cristo, so its lower in fat and calories. Great for a different breakfast sandwich!

These were very good but lacked the Cristo's usual sweet touch from seedless raspberry jam, although there was a little sweet from the powdered sugar. I used 12 slices swiss cheese as we do not care for processed cheese, and otherwise followed the recipe. I liked the egg coating and being able to toast them in the oven. I will make these again using the raspberry jam. Thanks for a nice oven recipe.
