video instructions available below 👇 


– 8 slices of thick-cut bread (such as brioche or French bread)
– 4 slices of Swiss cheese
– 4 slices of deli ham
– 4 slices of deli turkey
– Dijon mustard, to taste
– 3 large eggs
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
– 2 tablespoons butter
– Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
– Raspberry preserves or maple syrup, for dipping


1. Preheat a griddle or a large skillet over medium heat.

2. Assemble the sandwiches: Spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard on one side of each slice of bread. On four slices of bread, layer one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of ham, and one slice of turkey. Top with the remaining four slices of bread to form sandwiches.

3. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and black pepper until well combined.

4. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides evenly.

5. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter on the preheated griddle or skillet. Place the sandwiches on the griddle and cook until golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes per side. If needed, you can cook the sandwiches in batches.

6. Once the sandwiches are cooked, remove them from the griddle and place them on a cutting board. Cut each sandwich diagonally into halves or quarters.

7. Serve the Monte Cristo sandwiches warm, dusted with powdered sugar if desired, and accompanied by raspberry preserves or maple syrup for dipping.

8. Enjoy your homemade Monte Cristo sandwiches with friends and family for a delicious and satisfying meal!
