These sandwiches are a Foodoppi take on a classic Monte Cristo sandwich.
These are the most delicious combination of a toasted sandwich and french toast with the most “Christmas-y” filling imaginable.
They are rolled up just for fun and we even show you how to make them look like cool Christmas crackers.
These are ideal for a brunch on Stephen’s Day with all the leftover turkey and ham.
What You'll Need
8 slices of white bread
8 tsp cranberry sauce
4 thin slices of ham
4 thin slice of turkey
4 slices of gouda cheese ( or cheddar )
1 tsp oil
1 tsp butter
non-stick frying pan
large wide/deep bowl
tongs / egg turner
oven proof tray
How to Do It
- 1Preheat the oven to 160oC.
- 2Cut the crusts off the slices of bread and roll them flat with a rolling pin.
- 3Cut each slice of ham and turkey in half and each slice of gouda cheese into 3 thin strips.
- 4Spread over the cranberry sauce, getting all the way out to the edges.
Lay a piece of ham down first, then the cheese, followed by the turkey.
- 5Roll them up tightly ( like a swiss roll ) with the seam (opening) at the bottom.
- 6In a separate bowl - crack the 3 eggs, whisk together with the milk.
Roll the sambo in the egg, coat well.
- 7Heat up the oil and butter in the frying pan.
Lay in the sandwiches in the hot pan and brown all over. Rotate or keep turning them every 2/3 minutes until golden brown all over.
- 8As they batch fry, pop the cooked ones in the oven to melt even further.
To Food Style:
Cut the edges inwards with a scissors about 1/2 cm.
Get some festive string and tie a bow on each end about 1cm in. As the string tightens the edges fan out like a Christmas cracker.
Serve with some orange juice and a little extra cranberry sauce on the side.
