Turkey Monte Cristo Sandwich

A toasted Turkey Monte Cristo Sandwich to remember!


  • 8 slices bread

  • sliced roast turkey, (leftover or from the deli)

  • sliced Swiss, cheddar or Monterey jack

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tbsp milk

  • 1 tsp mustard

  • 2 tbsp butter, or margarine


  • Butter the slices of bread lightly on one side. Then on 4 of the slices, place some cheese, some turkey, then some more cheese. Top with the rest of the bread, buttered-side down, and squish them together firmly so that they don't fall apart.

  • In a shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and mustard. Dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture, coating them on both sides.

  • Melt butter in a skillet, and cook the sandwiches until nicely browned on both sides and the cheese is melted.

  • *A frozen juice box or mini ice pack tucked into your child's lunch box will help keep those sandwiches fresh and safe until lunchtime.
