The Monte Cristo Sandwich / Monte Cristo Sandwichen

A classic hot sandwich recipe from LostRecipesFound186_monte cristo sandwich_post

Ham, turkey and melted cheese on egg-dipped, butter-crisped white bread, the Monte Cristo sandwich made waitressing at the local Denny’s in that godawful brown polyester uniform, almost worth it. Perhaps because the fried bread’s a lot like French toast, “The Encyclopedia of Guilty Pleasures” puts the Monte Cristo in that “strange netherworld between breakfast and lunch,” making it perfect for Hobbit “elevensies.”

Most basically an Americanized Croque Monsieur, the Monte Cristo is purported to have first appeared under that menu moniker in 1950s 186_monte cristo sandwich2California. Disney started serving it in 1966 at its Blue Bayou and Tahitian Terrace restaurants on New Orleans Square in Disneyworld, and chain-restaurants popularized it ever after. Lost Recipes Found’s triple-decker version riffs on a Los Angeles recipe that Gourmet magazine ran in 1968, in response to a reader request.

Since The Monte Cristo Sandwich is mentioned in “The Encyclopedia of Guilty Pleasures” that was my book suggestion yesterday I found it just right for today’s second recipe post – Ted
