First things first. The picture I took totally does not do this brunch-wich justice. I don’t know why I couldn’t snap a pretty picture of it, but I can assure you that it is tasty! I first had this sandwich at Cheddar’s restaurant in Augusta, GA. The menu description is “smoked turkey and ham, and two cheeses on fresh bread. Then battered and cooked until golden, served with a side of raspberry preserves.” It was also topped with powdered sugar. I wasn’t sure if it was a breakfast or lunch sandwich because it was basically a lunch sandwich dressed up in french toast clothes. Either way, it was delicious. And rich. A little too rich.
I really wanted this brunch-wich again, but did not feel like consuming literally half of my calories in one sandwich. I adapted the recipe above from the Food Network. I also saved the sandwich crusts for a snack at a later time. But then I ended up eating them while I was cooking If you are vegan, you can use Katie’s french toast dipping recipe instead of the milk and eggs. If you are still unsure of how to make it, let me know and I will make a how-to video! Let me know what you think, and enjoy!
Have you ever had a Monte Cristo sandwich? What did you think? Would you categorize it as breakfast or lunch?
