This was an easy way to make many sandwiches at one time. It was very good.
Okay, I figured out how to make these without them sticking. Put your foil covered pan sprayed with cooking spray in the oven to preheat. Then when the oven is ready so is your pan and they will not stick. I made them twice just this week!!!
This is a great twist on a grilled cheese sandwich. Made it will white instead of wheat bread, was just as delicious.
I made this using a whole egg, and made one with italian and two with whole wheat. I definitely think this works better with a denser bread, like the italian bread (doesn't soak up as much egg). If you use a regular wheat bread make sure you just dip it into the mixture quickly- do not soak. And yes, use tin foil so you can throw away the mess on the pan because they stick. My wheat sandwiches soaked up a lot of egg & I had to cook them twice as long, but they did get brown & toasted & tasted good.
I did have to cook these longer than called for but they were very good. Kids and husband liked them.
This was Superb! Very nice for my low fat, diabetic diet.
I am a sucker for restaurant Monte Cristos, and this absolutely met my craving! I will be making this often, and I'm picking up some sugar-free raspberry preserves to go with it.
My husband is a picky eater, but he loved this sandwich. I put a little Italian dressing on to give it a little more flavor, and we both liked that. It did stick to the cookie sheet, so the second time I tried it, I sprayed it really liberally with cooking spray and when I turned the sandwiches, put them in a different spot. That seemed to help. I could easily see trying a variety of different meats and cheeses.
This recipe was quite good. It was a nice twist from just having your typical plain old ham and cheese sandwhich. It was much more filling and I prefer hot foods over cold ones. I've already made it twice. Next time I think I will add cinnamon, brown sugar, a little nutmeg and butter to the egg and milk mixture and make it a french toast ham and cheese monte cristo sandwhich. I love the taste of sweet and salty flavors combined.
This recipe doesn't work. The sandwiches don't get crispy and they stick to the pan. We followed every instruction precisely, twice. Don't use this one.
