    FOOD PORN WARNING (and grease warning too!!!)

    So I was sitting here on my day off and enjoying resting, watching tv and then got pretty hungry. I googled "Monte Cristo" and to my surprise I had literally hundreds of recipes to choose from...and thus my version of cheese Monte Cristo arrived...

    First, I took some flour, baking powder, and salt and sifted it together and then mixed it with one egg and water. Then I took two pieces of bread, spread one side with dijon mustard and sprinkled the other side with a handful of shredded monterey jack and cheddar cheese (I would have added ham if I had it!). I then carefully dipped the bread in the thick batter and then placed in a frying pan which was preheated and coated with canola oil. Waited until it was crispy and light brown on each side and then turned it down and waited for a bit for the cheese to melt...mmm...check it out!

    Then I got some strawberry preserves, added a little water to thin it out to make it great for dipping. And finally I sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. YUMMMMM! Its already gone...:eek: And I already want more!

    Now that I know how to make them...I hope I'm not home for lunch on a regular basis! (No way the DH would eat this, too much of a health nut)

    :lmao:

    Well thank you very much!

    But remember, this is not a reservation...and please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled PS...blah blah blah :laughing:

    But hmm...I wonder if I could make a cookie boat?
    I can't wait to try it sometime this next year. On one of the trips I'll have to fool the DH to go to Cafe Orleans (since I doubt he'll like anything on the menu) or convince him its worth it to go to Blue Bayou so I can actually experience the Disney magic of the wonderfulness that is the Monte Cristo!

    It's yummy with turkey and the swiss cheese.

    I had a really yummy salad when we ate there last time. DBF did the MC and we shared a little bit, I had a quarter of his sandwich, the rest was off limits. LOL

    That looks mighty good. I confess that I have never in about 16 years of going to DL had a Monte Cristo! DH & I are determined to have one this trip!!! So much good food so little time! Do the ones at DL have mustard on them? I dont remember reading that before?

    I think your version sounds better! I don't like ham and swiss anyway so I've never gotten one at DL.

    We could start our own DLR cookbook! :rotfl: This summer I had my own Bengal BBQ skewers. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2224517

    I now make the sauce and put it on other things too. But you are right, it isn't the same as being there.

    Wow...that looks AWESOME!!! I love MCs!!!

    Maybe I'll try this out...make it a dinner meal...hang a few paper lanterns and string up some "fireflies" to come on when the lights go dim...put on a little banjo music...whip up some crab cakes for dh and a MC for me, add a couple of mint juleps (the adult kind, I'm thinking) and happy birthday, dh :rotfl:

    Ok, I'd never follow through on all that but it sounds fun. Not sure how to capture Eau de Pirate Ride, either.

    My mom has been making these for years, minus the mustard and with Swiss cheese instead. :)
