"Easily adaptable into a Monte Cristo by just adding chicken, this wonderful battered then fried sandwich makes a great lunch with a tossed salad."

  1. Use 2 tablespoons of the butter to spread over one side of each slice of bread. On three of the slices, spread a layer of Dijon mustard over the butter, and top each with 4 slices of ham. On the other three, spread mayonnaise, and top each one with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Press ham and cheese sides of sandwiches together.
  2. In a flat bottomed dish, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, and water until blended. Set aside.
  3. Heat remaining butter and vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture, and fry in the oil and butter until browned, flipping to brown on each side.

My husband loved his but I only ended up eating half of a sandwich. They are very filling and I thought they were greasy and messy. I may try again but not fry in oil and butter.

I tried this sandwich, as written, and it was good but a bit too rich for me. Another reviewer called this sandwich a fake, which is wrong. This sandwich can be baked and broiled or fried in a p...

I made this sandwich with sliced turkey breast and provolone. I eliminated the frying part with oil and butter and used butter flavored Pam instead. I also eliminated the salt in the batter. It ...

I had this sandwich at a Diner off the I75 several years ago and this recipe is exactially what I was looking for. A little messy to make but quite worth it!

OMG, this was delicious. My only critique would be to eat it right away, or it will 'gell' up on you and not be as good (as with any fried food). I added onions to this and sauted mushrooms in o...

Very Good! Liked it better with mozzarella on sourdough. Made it for dinner with the "Best Ever Hot Artichoke Dip." Available on this site also. Very filling.

Authentic or not, still mighty tasty sandwich. I don't keep white bread in the house, so I used wheat. I did not use vegetable oil to fry them in, instead I used a little butter in the hot pan. ...

I love this. It is a great twis on the great American ham and cheese. But so sinfully rich... LOVE IT!
