How to make it

  • For the country fries:
  • Heat the oil and butter in non-stick skillet; add prepared potatoes. Sauté without stirring, until golden on bottom. Turn and brown the other sided. Sprinkle with seasonings to taste.
  • For the sandwiches:
  • Beat the eggs, cream, salt and nutmeg in a shallow rectangle baking dish. Spread the spread on all slices of the breads. Build the sandwich from the bottom up by following this order: bread, 1 slice Swiss cheese, turkey, ham, 1 slice of American cheese, 1 piece of bread.
  • Put the pan on a medium-high burner, and add all of the butter. Let the butter bubble and melt, but not burn.
  • Take each Monte Cristo sandwich and dip them into the bowl with the egg mixture then carefully put each one into the hot fry pan. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook each piece on all sides until golden brown.
  • Press firmly down to hold, then cut the whole sandwich diagonally down with a sharp slicing knife.
  • For each person, put 1 pieces of the sandwich on a plate when it’s ready to serve. Spoon 2 oz. of the jam onto each plate or a small dish.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the sandwiches liberally with powdered sugar. Serve with country fries and maple syrup & jam (and ketchup!)on the side .

    I'm a fan of Monte Cristos too, and your version sounds delicious! Who me...knock cheese...never! I haven't tried them with maple syrup...sounds yummy though. And the potatoes are great too, and sounds so easy to prepare. Thanks Luisa :) ^5

    I love Monte Cristo sandwiches - that sweet and savory flavor play really works for me. Plus, the potatoes look easy and delicious as well. Love the maple syrup suggestion, too. A high 5 from me and a flag for beauty. I think I need to have some lunch now...I'm starving. Thanks!!
