  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  • Whisk milk, egg, and nutmeg together in a shallow bowl. Dip each bread slice in the egg mixture.

  • Cook dipped bread slices in the hot oil until French toast is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minute per side. Transfer French toast to a work surface and turn heat under skillet to medium-low.

  • Spread cranberry sauce over 1 French toast piece and top with turkey, provolone cheese, and bacon. Spread mustard on the other French toast piece and top with ham; lay on top of bacon layer, ham-side down, creating a sandwich.

  • Cook sandwich in the skillet until cheese is melted and sandwich is heated through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

Substitute Swiss cheese for the provolone cheese, if desired. Berry jam can be used in place of the cranberry sauce.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I decided to forego the egg dip instead making this on my panini grill. Aside from that small change I still got the crispy effect.. Read More

This is not a Monte Cristo. Just a sandwich made with French toast. A true Monte Cristo is 3 pieces of toast filled with turkey ham and cheese dipped into a batter (like thin pancakes batter) and deep fried. Served with light powder surgar and raspberry jam on the side. Read More

2.28.16 This sandwich has a lot going on but the bacon brown mustard and cranberry sauce were good additions. Couldn't really taste the nutmeg so if you're looking for that flavor I'd recommend adding more than a pinch. My bread slices were huge so it ended up being monster size...we split it for lunch today. Read More

I made several variations of this recipe... sometimes I use all three meats or I will substitute Canadian Bacon for regular... I have use a variety of different fruit preserves in place of the cranberry sauce and even mixed up the cheeses (using American Swiss Pepper Jack Cheddar and even Provolone) and have found that I can really pick a favorite combination.... One might wonder "Why" so many different variation?... truth is for me it is "variety in food is the spice of life". Read More
