Tasty Eats: Monte Cristo Sandwich
While baby is still cooking, I love asking my sister for recipes of super tasty things that I know will comfort me! I haven’t had a ton of cravings, but I’m always craving great food. She is an incredible cook and baker, so when she shared this recipe I knew that it would be delectable. Because it’s not just any kind of sandwich…a Monte Cristo Sandwich!
Its buttery…full of delicious ham and cheese and fried to golden perfection!
Make one for yourself! Then put on some comfy loose clothes and enjoy all that fried loveliness!
