In this video, you'll see how to turn the famous Monte Cristo sandwich into an amazing brunch treat. This recipe combines the best of French toast with a melty ham and cheese sandwich and perfectly poached eggs. To make it, you’ll simply add slices of day-old French bread to a slightly sweet batter and then brown them in a skillet. Next, you’ll simply build the Monte Cristo with ham slices, Cheddar, and Havarti cheeses. After a quick trip to the oven, it’s time to Benedictize your baked Monte Cristo with a couple poached eggs. The eggs provide the sauce here, so there’s no need for hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle on some cayenne pepper and fresh chives. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Monte Cristo Benedict. It’s an amazing three-in-one brunch dish, savory with a very slight sweet component. See more Chef John videos >>
