i love this recipe. My husband has an obsesion with monte cristo sandwiches and they have to be just right...this one was exactly what he wanted!
I've had the most FABULOUS Monte Christo sandwiches in restaurants. These were OK. I think you really need a deep fryer so you can deep fry these to get the best results. I used my George Foreman grill with mediocre results.
So far this is the Monte Cristo Sandwich that we like the best. There are several to choose from this site. The only thing I did differently was to use a high moisture, fresh mozzerella cheese instead of the shredded. I also cut down a bit on the nutmeg. Thanks for the post.
This is VERY good - just the right blend of sweet and spicy. I used smoked deli turkey for the meat, and served it with a dusting of powdered sugar. Highly recommended - my husband and son loved it!
This was great. It's not quite like Bennigan's but we don't have a bennigans anymore and this'll do. PLUS it's much healthier than bennigans. I did have to change it a tiny bit because of what I had on hand. I used sliced honey turkey breast, provolone cheese, which I think was better than swiss and I used cranberry chutney for dipping. I was very disappointed when I didn't have raspberry preserves but after tasting the cranberry with it, I'll never go back. It complimented the sandwich well. Thanks for the recipe!
These were good, but I was hoping for a recipe similar to the way restaurants make them where they're completely encased in some kind of batter.
All the family agreed this is a good sandwich. I would add more cheese next time.
These sandwiches were very very good. I did make a couple of ingredient substitutions for what I had on hand- used boneless chicken thighs and sliced provolone cheese. Followed the rest of the recipes exactly as written and I will definitely make these again.
