My Variation On The Monte Cristo
Lots of downtime at work these days. Experimenting for today's lunch special, I came up this version of the Monte Cristo.
2 pieces Texas Toast
2 oz sliced turkey
2 oz sliced canadian bacon
2 slices swiss cheese
2 slices colby jack cheese.
Sounds quite ok, right.
Let's make a variation or two, on the original!!!
Make your favorite French Toast Batter:
2 eggs, beaten
1c heavy cream
1T Vanilla Vodka (Optional)
Nutmeg to taste
Cinnamon to Taste
Mix ingredients together.
Next...preheat deep-fryer to 350 degrees.
Take sandwich and dredge in French Toast Batter, and let sit for a minute or so on a plate, so everything soaks in. Take 4 toothpicks and insert on all 4 sides.
Take sandwich, put in deep fryer basket, lower in to fryer, with another fryer basket on top of sandwich to keep cooking evenly.
3 minutes later, you are done. Pull sandwich out of basket, and wrap in paper towels to soak up oil until satisfied.
Cut in half, drizzle with powdered sugar, and then, dip with maple syrup.
But if you want, you can cook this on a griddle like French Toast.
Either way it's yummy.
