To make a Monte Cristo sandwich, assemble white bread, sliced ham or turkey, and Swiss cheese. Dip the sandwich in egg batter, then either deep fry or pan fry the result. When it's done, sprinkle it with powdered sugar.
Crafted Donuts in Fountain Valley, California offers this sandwich in a marvelous donut form. The traditional fillings, as well as what appears to be strawberry and lemon jelly, fill the interior of this breakfast treat. Yummy!
