I remember the first time I had a Monte Cristo sandwich.  I was in my late teens/early twenties, and my brother made it for me.  When I first heard that it was a meat and cheese sandwich that is dusted with powdered sugar and served with raspberry jam, I definitely had my doubts.  My I was quickly converted, and now I am a true lover of the sandwich.  In fact, it was one of the first sandwiches I blogged about, way back in 2007.

My daughter turned 2 last month, and we threw a little family party to celebrate.  On the menu was sandwiches.  And this is the first sandwich that popped into my head!  My mom has actually made this version of a Monte Cristo before, and it is an easy, delicious way to serve a crowd.  The recipe serves 8, but it was super easy to cut into little triangles for a crowd, and it tastes great both cold and warm.  And it really doesn’t get much easier!!  This is one that might make people wonder at first, but believe me – after one bite, they’ll be sold!!
