Monte Cristo sandwich

A Monte Cristo sandwich consists of ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese between two slices of bread, soaked in an egg-based batter and grilled or deep-fried.

It is often served with a currant or raspberry jelly, powdered sugar, or sweet mustard sauce. The sandwich is often served with fresh fruit or with maple syrup on the side.
