|Monte Cristo Sandwich, Chips and Red Currant Jelly|
|Egg and Buttermilk before the mixin'|
|Dunking the sandwich|
Quickly dip both sides of the bread into the egg/milk mixture and place into a pan on medium heat that has a pat of unsalted butter and an equal amount of olive oil...good olive oil.
Brown on both sides slowly in order to melt the cheese, heat the inside of the sandwich and create a really crunchy crust.
|Almost ready for the plate|
Remove from the pan and cut into pieces. Plate with a dollop of red currant jelly and chips or whatever you prefer. I think, personally, a Cornichon would be great, too.
Monte Cristo, Red Currant Jelly & Chips
I'll definitely make this sandwich again. Good Brunch idea, maybe. It's such a great contrast of savory and sweet.
