Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches
Set aside the bread and serve this ham and cheese melt on puff pastry instead. Sweet and savory sandwich recipes never tasted so good...especially when topped with a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar.
Cost per recipe: $6.37.
Easy Substitution: For a savory twist, serve with Dijon-style mustard instead of the maple syrup.

Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time20 min
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
- all-purpose flour
- 8 thin slices deli Black Forest ham
- 4 slices deli Swiss cheese (about 4 ounces)
- confectioners' sugar
- pure maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut into 4 (6-inch) squares. Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg mixture.
With a corner of 1 pastry facing you, place 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese on the bottom half of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastries. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with the maple syrup.
