The typical Monte Cristo sandwich has ham inside and uses strawberry or raspberry preserves as a dipping sauce. But I cut out the meat and cut to the chase by spreading blackberry jelly on the inside of the sandwich.

  • 4 large slices sourdough bread
  • honey mustard
  • blackberry jelly
  • 2 large (1 ounce each) slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tablespoons butter

For each sandwich: One slice is slathered in honey mustard; the other, black raspberry jelly.

On 2 slices of bread, spread one side with honey mustard. On the other 2 slices of bread, spread one side with preserves. Place cheese on slices of honey mustard-covered bread, folding cheese to fit. Close sandwiches with preserves-covered bread.

Beat eggs in a pie plate or large, shallow bowl. Add milk, and beat well. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture for about 30 seconds per side or until well coated. Fry sandwiches in butter for about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Serve immediately.

Makes 2.
