Waffled Monte Cristos Recipe


1 egg

1/4 cup 2% milk

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

4 slices white bread

2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

4 slices process American cheese (2/3 ounce each)

2 thin slices deli turkey (1/2 ounce each)

2 slices Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each)

2 thin slices deli ham (1/2 ounce each)

2 teaspoons butter

2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar

1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

How to make it

In a shallow bowl, combine the egg, milk, sugar and orange peel. Dip bread into egg mixture. Place on a preheated waffle iron; sprinkle each slice of bread with pecans. Bake according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown.

Place an American cheese slice on two bread slices; layer with turkey, Swiss cheese, ham and remaining American cheese. Top with remaining bread; butter outsides of sandwiches.

Toast sandwiches in a skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. Dust with confectioners’ sugar; serve with jam.
