Monte Cristo Sandwich from Lemony Thyme

The Monte Cristo Sandwich is a perfect Breakfast for Dinner dish.  In fact it could be considered a Dinner for Breakfast meal as well.  There’s nothing to it when it comes to making these ‘feel good’ sandwiches.  Make yourself a basic deli sliced turkey, ham & cheese sandwich with a little Dijon mustard.  Now treat this sandwich like french toast and dip it in an egg/milk mixture.  Fry them in a little butter until browned on each side and the cheese has melted.  Serve them with a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar and a dollop of jam.  They are so good!!
