Monte Cristo Sandwiches


John and I went to Disneyland on our honeymoon.  Additionally, my birthday fell on one of the days we were at the park.  So even though The Blue Bayou was booked, they got us in. . . right on the shore to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.  It was quite the memorable experience.  And we will never forget how delicious their Monte Cristo Sandwich was.  This recipe is delicious, too, but isn't battered and deep fried like the Blue Bayou's.  Oh, so good, though.

{What you need}
8 slices French bread
1 pound cooked ham, thinly sliced
8 ounces Swiss cheese, sliced
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup olive oil
powdered sugar (optional)
Raspberry jam (optional)

Top 4 slices of bread with ham, Swiss cheese, and another slice of bread.  Beat eggs, add milk, dip tops and bottoms of sandwiches into egg mixture.  Heat oil and butter in frying pan over medium heat.  Fry sandwiches until golden on each side.  Be patient, don't take them out prematurely.  Keep in a 200 degree heated oven until ready to serve.  If desired, sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and serve with jam.  Such a good combo of savory and sweet!!
