Chef John's Monte Cristo Benedict

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
This was a wonderful recipe. I actually made this as a breakfast in bed for my lady for Valentine's Day and she loved it. She actually loved it so much that she requested it for breakfast a couple days later. The first day I didn't have enough of the egg mixture to coat the 4th bread (Texas Toast), but that may have been because I left the first to absorb too much, I'm not certain. The second time, since there's just two of us, I cut the recipe in half and had enough mixture for both slices. I substituted Chipotle Chile Powder for the Cayenne, just because I didn't have any on hand. I also omitted the chives and all-spice, again because I didn't have any. But I think the highlight of this was definitely the Havarti cheese which neither of us had ever tried prior to this recipe. The cheese is very creamy and buttery. I just wanted to write in and say thank you to Chef John for this wonderful recipe.
