In honor of Mr. Food
and his love of traditions, we combined his love of breaking bread with
family and his favorite way to use Challah bread which was to make a
grilled Monte Cristo sandwich. We know he'd be proud his legacy has
carried on and if you listen closely enough, you can hear those four
words we loved hearing him say so much... "OOH, IT'S SO GOOD!!"
What You'll Need:
pound thinly sliced deli turkey
pound thinly sliced deli ham
8 (1-ounce) slices Swiss cheese
16 slices egg bread (challah)
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
What To Do:
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until well combined.
Equally divide the turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese on 8 slices of bread. Top with remaining slices of bread.
In a large skillet or on a griddle, melt 1 tablespoon butter over
medium heat. Dip two sandwiches, one at a time, in the egg mixture,
coating completely. Place in skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until egg is golden and cheese is melted.
Repeat with remaining sandwiches, adding more butter as needed. Serve sandwiches immediately.
