The classic Monte Cristo is made with thinly sliced ham and Gruyère or Emmentel cheese. The sandwich is then dipped in an egg batter and pan or deep fried. It’s essentially ham and cheese on French toast. Yum!
When I make these at home, I try to resist the temptation of using too much butter for frying the sandwich. You don’t want an overly greasy sandwich.
