  • The #montecristo #sandwich is compose of layers of ham and cheese with a touch of strawberry jam and mustard. The sandwich is then dipped into an egg wash and fried like french toast. Mmm...let's do this!

    I always made these without the jelly but with miracle whip and I keep the crust on because it’s the best part duh 🙄 .

    I actually didn't know there was a difference between jelly and jam. I just thought it was a word preference. That was really interesting to learn.

    Deep fried monte Cristo is delicious! I had it once at a place in Marco island but the batter was made with melted vanilla ice cream instead of milk!
    Also, many people eat monte Cristo sandwiches with powdered sugar and maple syrup. I personally like it with just a little powdered sugar! It's my absolute favorite sandwich! Now I want one, lol!!!
    Noooo, dont remove the crust, its the best part and that why no instructural integrity! And no mustard or jam!
    Nice griddle, what brand is it?

    I used to make a jam for my mom that was sugar free as she was a type 2 diabetic. She would stir equal in before she used it. Maby other people can do it with other artificial sweeteners or with Splenda.

    I always thought the highest ratio of sugar to fruit in a jam is 1:1. This is 2:1 😱 no wonder Emmy has to make a special effort to make them taste fruity. My strawberry jam has a ratio of 1:2 (sugar to fruit). It's as fruity as it can be. Also, doesn't require pectin either. Just fruit suspended in slightly sugary fruit-juice.

    I discovered the Monte Cristo when I was in college. It was nothing more than 2 French toast slice's with ham and cheese. It was so gooooood. My mind was blown. A sandwich but the bread is French Toast? WTF! Every sandwich should be made with French Toast.

    Isn't it supposed to be dusted with powdered sugar or is that just someone's personal preference I saw one time?

    Strawberry freezer jam was really popular back in the 1970s. Might have been when it was first invented. 🤔

    I thought when she said, "you wanna see me wash dishes?" I found it a little funny. Kind of like, "C'mon guys, really?" I had no idea that was even a criticism. I mean, seriously?

    Emmy, thanks for re-sparking a beautiful memory of my mum. I had tears in my eyes while you made the jam. That's the only way she made it and I always helped because she would pick buckets of them at the farm every year. Thanks again, only complaint you never asked if we wanted a bite of the sandwich:)

    I love hot ham and cheese sandwiches, but my body can't tolerate them. Guaranteed a week of purging, can't even hold down water. It sucks.
    My husband was working in NYC once, went to a deli to get a Monte Cristo. It was served toasted, and open faced! What even is THAT!
