Monte Cristo

So I don't know if many people are familiar with a Monte Cristo sandwich, but my impression of them comes from Disneyland, where it is a deep fried ham and Swiss sandwich topped with powdered sugar and served with jam. I've been craving one terribly and I have no idea where else to find one.

I saw a recipe in a magazine for one, but it wasn't quite what I consider a Monte Cristo. It called for dijon mustard and had no powdered sugar or jam (so what would be the point?!). But it did have instructions for dipping it in a milk and egg mixture and frying it in oil, much like a French toast.

So we did these for dinner one night last week and really enjoyed it! It wasn't quite the deep fried version, but it certainly satisfied my craving!
