I grew up loving the Monte Cristo served at Disneyland and although memory can fool you, I just don’t think they make it the way I remember over 40 years ago. So I decided to try to recreate this fabulous meal for myself.
Although the Monte Cristo is distinctively American it has some rather popular European roots. Some version or another is prepared fondly in nearly every country. In France , it started off as the “Croque-monsieur” which means something like Crunch-mister… let me know if you figure that out?
It is a fun little meal that really doesn’t take all that time and energy to make… but makes everyone happy!
