The Monte Cristo

Whole Grain Honey White Bread


  • 12 slices Aunt Millie's Homestyle Whole Grain Honey White Bread
  • 8 thin slices of Gouda Cheese
  • 4 slices of smoked turkey breast
  • 4 slices of lean honey baked ham
  • 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Garnish with powdered sugar and blackberry preserves


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • Pinch of salt

Yield: 4 Sandwiches


  1. Remove crust from bread slices.
  2. Top 8 bread slices with one slice of Gouda cheese.
  3. Cut turkey and ham slices in half, placing one piece of turkey and one piece of ham on top of the 8 slices of bread with Gouda cheese.
  4. Place one plain slice of bread in between two slices of bread with toppings to create four triple-decker sandwiches.
  5. Tightly wrap the sandwiches in plastic wrap, pressing down on the outer edges so that sandwiches are sealed shut. Place sandwiches in refrigerator.
  6. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together egg, milk, and water. Add baking powder, flour, and salt and beat until smooth.
  7. Pour vegetable oil into skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is heated, remove one sandwich from plastic wrap, dip into batter until evenly coated and place into heated skillet.
  8. Cook sandwich for approximately 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per side until golden and crispy. Remove sandwich from heat and immediately sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Cut sandwich into quarters.
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 for remaining 3 sandwiches.
  10. Serve warm with blackberry preserves & fresh fruit. Great for lunch or as an appetizer. Enjoy!
