Sweet-Hot Monte Cristo Sandwiches

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this wonderful recipe in the Chicago Tribune years ago but it's actually a winning recipe in the 'Jones Dairy Farm annual Best Recipes of America's Bed and Breakfast Inns roundup. The contestant was the Shore House at Lake Tahoe in Tahoe Vista, California. Serve these with fresh fruit.

In spite of the fact that I did make this recipe as written, I still prefer my Monte Cristos with a strawberry spread! Still, these were a nice change of pace & we enjoyed the use of muenster cheese along with Canadian bacon! Thanks for posting it!
