Monte Cranberry Cristo Sandwich


I love Monte Cristo Sandwiches. I sure don’t see them sold at restaurants anymore. This holiday season, I had turkey, cranberry sauce and ham leftover.  So here is my version using up delicious leftovers. If you do not have items used in this recipe leftover, they are available to purchase all year. You can go to the deli and just buy ham or turkey slices, not a pound of this or that. Cranberry sauce is sold all year.  If you are not a fan of cranberry, you may substitute your favorite jam/jelly. 


Ingredients:

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 slices of your favorite bread, I used my favorite, sourdough, two days old 

2 slices of Swiss Cheese, or more if desired

1 generous slice of turkey

1 generous slice of ham

Powdered sugar, optional 


Cranberry Sauce:

2 Tablespoons of leftover cranberry sauce

1/2 teaspoon vinegar, I used white distilled but use whatever you have on hand

A pinch or more of red pepper flakes, if you want spicy cranberry sauce, optional
Mix together in a separate bowl and set aside. 


Prepare pan with spray or butter. In a bowl, whisk together egg and heavy cream. Set aside. To assemble sandwich, spread cranberry sauce on the inside of the bread. Place a slice of Swiss Cheese on top of the cranberry sauce. Next put on turkey and ham slices and cover with the other bread slice. Dip entire sandwich in the egg mixture covering all side of bread on both sides. Place in pan and brown on both sides. Cut in half and sprinkle powdered sugar on top if desired. Enjoy!

    • The vinegar does 2 things. It helps cut a bit of the sweetness and it helps to make the cranberry sauce smooth so it’s spreadable on the bread and easy to dunk your sandwich in. I am doing well. Please send some rain and cool temps my way. Hugs. ❤️❤️❤️
