One of my favorite meals in the universe is the Monte Cristo Sandwich. I have found only three places that make them however: Bennigan’s, a random restaurant in Beaver, Utah, and the Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland. Thankfully, Disneyland is kind enough to spare us the $25 price tag and post the recipe online! I pinned it ages ago, and when my birthday rolled around, I decided to make the calorie splurge and go for it.
And oh, was it awesome! There isn’t a redeemingly healthy ingredient in this dish. Meat, melty cheese, deep fried and coated with sugar and jelly.
The only problems I ran into was that I didn’t have quite enough oil, and that coating the sandwiches was a bit tricky. One of them opened up a bit when I was dipping it in the batter, so the batter that leaked inside the sandwich didn’t get cooked. That one was a bit soggy.
Otherwise, a pin WIN!
