Monte Cristo Sandwich
When served with a green salad, this filling sandwich makes a perfect light supper. Traditionally made with three slices of bread per sandwich, our carb controlled version uses only two.
4 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices Irene's Low Carb white or rye bread *
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
8 ounces smoked ham slices
8 ounces Swiss cheese slices
8 ounces roasted turkey breast slices
1/3 cup cream plus 3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Spread 4 slices of bread with mustard. Divide ham, cheese, and turkey slices over bread. Top with remaining bread slices and press down to flatten slightly.
2. Mix eggs, cream mixture and salt in a shallow bowl. Melt butter on a griddle or in 2 skillets over medium heat. Dip each sandwich into batter, coating well.
3. Cook sandwiches 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown. Press down lightly with a spatula once or twice during cooking time to melt the cheese.
