Crock Pot Roast Chicken There is something so comforting about having a meal ready to eat when you get home. We eat crock pot meals 2 or 3 times a week during the fall and winter season because they are so easy to throw together and taste delicious.

How to Make a Monte Cristo Sandwich

We love this easy sandwich for a hearty lunch or a late night snack. Delicious on a budget and quick to make anytime! What’s a Monte Cristo? One of my favorite sandwiches is the Monte Cristo. It’s a french creation, originally called Croque Monsieur.  Rich and satisfying, it is as yummy as it looks! Traditionally served for breakfast this is a popular staple at french cafe’s and is often served with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and jam for dipping. The high protein in the sandwich here comes from the bread being actually dipped in egg wash like french toast, then grilled to perfection. Load up your griddle with lots of grass fed butter when frying for the best flavor! I use coconut milk or almond milk occasionally for a different set of flavors. Print Yum Monte Cristo Sandwich (Croque Monsieur) IngredientsWhite or whole wheat bread Milk (1/3 cup per sandwich) Eggs (1 per sandwich) Slices of Mozzarella or Gruyere Cheese Sliced Deli Ham Butter Powdered Sugar (optional) Jam (optional)InstructionsPreheat griddle or cast iron frying pan.
