I have never made a monte cristo before, I have had it in restaurants, so I decided to make one myself. This is my version of a monte cristo.
Many flavors make up this sandwich, spicy cheese, sweet jam, and the aged parmesan, I love conflicting flavors right now. So interesting, and yummy.
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 3 slices prosciutto
- cheddar cheese
- parmesan cheese
- pepper jack cheese
- handful baby spinach
- tablespoon dijon mustard
- tablespoon peach jam
- 1 egg
- splash milk
Whisk the egg and milk in a small bowl, transfer to a plate.
Build the sandwich, layer cheeses, and prosciutto on the bread. Heat a small skillet over medium heat skillet and melt a tablespoon of butter in it. Dip each side of the sandwich in the egg mixture. Place the sandwich in the skilet, put a plate ontop, and then a heavy can on top of the plate (to create a pinene effect). Cook on each side until lightly browned, and cheeses are melted.
Open the sandwich, spread one pieace of the bread with a heavy layer of mustard, and the other with jam, then add spinach.
