Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches

This image courtesy of campbellskitchen.com

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.

Notes


Cost per recipe: $6.37.



Recipe Tips:    

Easy Substitution: For a savory twist, serve with Dijon-style mustard instead of the maple syrup.

Serves4

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time20 min

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with the maple syrup.

The traditional Monte Cristo sandwich has always been a favorite of mine, but I love this version as well...it's perfect for snacking and I'm sure would be great to make up a bunch and freeze for another time. The sweet version is definitely not my thing but I do love the mustard idea and would probably put it on the inside of the sandwich before baking to incorporate all of that yumminess together.

I love this baked version of the classic Monte Cristo Sandwich. The ham and melted cheese inside the puff pastry is marvelous. I make these with one slice of ham and one slice of turkey just to step it up a notch. I love the finishing touch of confectioner's sugar and maple syrup for that wonderful sweet and savory flavor.

This Baked Monte Cristo sandwiches are healthy food because they are baked. They look yummy starting from the puff pastry used in the dough then stuffed with cheese and ham. My family will definitely like this. The maple syrup is optional for me. The sandwich itself is perfect without it.
