Monte Cristo Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 slices white bread
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices turkey
  • 4 slices ham
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar for dusting

Directions:

  1. Heat 5 inches of oil in a deep-fryer to 360F.
  2. While oil is heating, make the batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and water.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; whisk into the egg mixture until smooth.
  4. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  5. Assemble sandwiches by placing one slice of turkey on one slice of bread, a slice of ham on another, then sandwich them with the Swiss cheese in the middle.
  6. Cut sandwiches into quarters, and secure with toothpicks.
  7. Dip each sandwich quarter in the batter so that all sides are coated.
  8. Deep fry in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides. Remove toothpicks and arrange on a serving tray.
  9. Dust with confectioners’ sugar just before serving.

  1. My daughter, 12, just ate this at the Pirates of the Caribbean. She would like to use your recipe and make dinner for the rest of us.

    BTW: I think your background looks crisp and clean and it’s perfect for your cooking content. I found your blog in a comment about custom backgrounds.
