Ghost of Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Makes 2


4 slices Sara Lee Country Potato Bakery Bread

4 slices Sara Lee Baby Swiss Cheese

2 slices Sara Lee Oven Roasted Breast of Turkey

2 slices Sara Lee Virginia Brand Baked Ham

3 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)


1.Lay bread slices on work surface. On 2 bread slices, place 1 slice cheese, 1 slice turkey, 1 slice ham, and 1 more slice of cheese; top each with remaining bread slice.

2.Using a 5-by-4-inch ghost-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a ghost-shaped sandwich; repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside.

3.In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt.

4.In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture to coat well on both sides, and place in skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
