I love a good Monte Cristo, but have never made one myself, so this was a new experience for me ~ also new to using beer in recipes! A few changes were made, however, including cutting back on the cayenne pepper to almost nothing [After all, really now, what's a pinch?] & using honey-baked ham! Also I WAS TEMPTED to make this a 3-layer sandwich, but didn't! It did take a lot more time to prepare than I'd expected [& I totally lost track of the time, too!], but the result was a VERY, VERY tasty sandwich! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This has to be the strangest thing I've ever eaten! My mother said it was lovely and enjoyed the great mix of flavors. I thought the flavors were pretty amazing as well. I don't think I'd make it again though. My stomach can't stand too much fried food. So, I may use the basic recipe and just eat it as a grilled cheese and turkey sandwich, and skip the batter part. This made a lot of batter by the way, and now I need to figure out what to use it on instead of tossing it! :-) I would have given it a 3 1/2, but it's getting a 4 since my mother loved it so much! I'll make it again for her one day! :-)
