    UnknownChef86's Note:

    This delightfully quick and easy sandwich will make a Monte Cristo lover out of you. Don't substitute the green can of Parmesan for the freshly-grated stuff...there's a huge difference in flavor. For convenience, this recipe uses a pre-roasted rotisserie chicken from your local market. The amount for the chicken is approximate...you need enough to cover the bread, to taste. Serve this sandwich with a bowl of tomato soup for a hearty lunch or dinner. I also like it made ahead, chilled and eaten cold in a sack lunch.

    Egg mixture

    Sandwich filling

    • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 4 slices sourdough French bread, large round artisan-style, cut in half to make 4 sandwiches
    • 4 slices swiss cheese, good quality
    • 2 cups rotisserie-cooked chicken, thinly sliced (I prefer the breast)
    • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
    • 8 slices thin-sliced cooked ham, good quality (I prefer off-the-bone from the deli)
    • honey mustard (optional) or raspberry preserves (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Egg Mixture: Using a fork, lightly beat the eggs and salt together in a shallow pan. Add remaining ingredients and beat to combine. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Sandwich Prep: Layer the cheese, chicken, Parmesan, and ham on half of the bread slices. Top with remaining slices of bread.
    3. 3
      To completely cook the egg and melt the cheese, it's better to cook this a little longer and a little slower. Preheat a griddle (I use a cast iron one) over medium-low heat and coat with half the butter.
    4. 4
      Quickly dip two of the sandwiches in the egg mixture -- the bread should be coated but not saturated.
    5. 5
      Place in the skillet and cook until golden brown, 4-5 minutes per side, carefully flipping to avoid filling falling out. Also, flip as necessary to prevent scorching. Cook til cheese is melted.
    6. 6
      Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
    7. 7
      Serve with more mustard or preserves, if desired.
