This Monte Cristo sandwich takes things to a whole new level with cinnamon raisin bread, muenster cheese and apricot preserves.
  • 8 slices whole grain raisin bread
  • 16 slices black forest ham
  • 4 slices muenster cheese
  • ¼ cup Bonne Maman apricot preserves + more for serving
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp. salted butter
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  1. Layer 4 slices of bread with honey ham, muenster and apricot preserves. Place remaining bread slices on top.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together milk, eggs, nutmeg, cloves and salt until combined.
  3. Heat one tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet to medium heat. Dip one assembled sandwich in milk/egg mixture, then place in the hot skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes per side, until bread is golden brown and cheese is completely melted. Repeat this process with remaining butter and sandwiches.
  4. Slice each sandwich into 4 squares and serve with extra apricot preserves and powdered sugar (optional).
