    Mysterygirl's Note:

    Bennigan's makes the most awesome Monte Cristo sandwiches. A great break from the usual toasted ham & cheese.

      Boy were these babies good! I really liked making this recipe, and it didn't take very long. We had a nice lunch of these sandwiches and fruit salad. All of the flavors together were so good. Thanks for sharing this keeper!!

      Since our local Bennigans recently locked its doors, I was lamenting that I may never enjoy a proper Monte Cristo sandwich until I found this recipe. I just made 3 sandwiches today for my family and they were fabulous. I followed some advice found on another site and prepped the sandwiches last night, wrapped them tighly in plastic wrap (uncut) and stored them in refridge overnight. They stayed together well during cooking without needing toothpicks. The ingredients I used were: Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Shaved Oven Roasted Turkey Breast Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Shaved Honey Ham Jewel Brand Swiss Singles Jewel Brand American Singles Jewel Brand Wheat Bread Smucker's Red Raspberry Preserves I've posted a photo of my success with this tasty recipe:
