Monte Cristo Burger

A Monte Cristo sandwich usually consists of ham, cheese and white bread which is dipped in egg batter, fried, then dusted with powdered sugar. Umami Burger, a ritzy hamburger chain in southern California, now offers a burger based on the Monte Cristo sandwich.

It's the brainchild of Michael Voltaggio, a chef famous for his work on the reality TV show Top Chef and his Los Angeles restaurants Ink and Ink Sack. For his Monte Cristo burger, Voltaggio uses Gruyere cheese fondue and proscuitto. The bun is then soaked in custard, fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Voltaggio then wraps the bun around a beef patty and serves the burger with a side of maple syrup.
