Stick to a Monte Cristo

Ingredients

Monte Cristo

Honey-Balsamic and Apricot Syrup

Instructions

  1. Monte Cristo: Cream together cream cheese, roasted garlic and parsley. Spread 1/5th of the mixture onto the first slice of bread. Top with 3 ounces ham and 1 ounce Swiss cheese. Top with another slice of bread and repeat layering with cream cheese, ham, Swiss cheese and bread. Finish off the top with the last slice of bread. Slide 1 bamboo skewer into the top of the sandwich at each side. With a sharp serrated knife, cut crusts off the edges of the sandwich. Make 2 diagonal slices through the sandwich to create 4 equal triangles.
  2. Whisk together eggs and milk. Dip each sandwich skewer into the egg mixture, coat all sides well and place on a separate plate. Heat olive oil on a griddle over medium heat. Place all of the skewers onto the griddle and brown for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Serve with Honey-Balsamic and Apricot Syrup.
  3. Honey-Balsamic and Apricot Syrup: Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and let simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat and place into a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.
  4. Serve with Monte Cristo sandwiches.

Serves 4.
