Monte Christo Sandwich
French Toast? It's a Monte Christo Sandwich!
A great way to impress your breakfast guests. Our Monte Christo sandwich can be made with almost any type of bread and whatever you like as a filling. Another nice thing is that if you do decide to serve the sandwich as part of Breakfast in Bed, it's not too messy!

Ingredients  For one Monte Christo Sandwich
  • one tablespoon sunflower or vegetable oil
  • two pieces of raisin bread (white, whole wheat and challah breads also work well)
  • one egg, scrambled in a bowl
  • one slice Swiss cheese
  • two slices smoked turkey breast

  • Preheat a preferably non-stick pan on medium-high.
  • Dip one piece of bread in the egg.
  • Place the Swiss cheese and then the smoked turkey breast slices on top.
  • Dip other piece of bread in egg and place on top of sandwich.
  • Add oil to pan. Once heated, add sandwich and allow to cook for a few moments. Once sandwich is browned to your liking, flip sandwich and cook for a few moments on the other side and brown, again to your liking.
  • To enhance the presentation of the Monte Christo you may wish to sprinkle the top with icing sugar and add a dollop of Pommery mustard to the side.
A nice robust coffee is always a welcome drink. The type of juice you serve is where you can become a little more exotic. How about guava or lychee juice? Failing that, you can't beat fresh squeezed orange juice!
