Monte Cristo Sandwiches

These are quite the hit at our house! Every time that my husband and I go to lunch somewhere he is always ordering a Monte Cristo. So, since he loves them so much I decided to make them on my own at home. The taste of the salty meat and cheese dipped in sweet homemade Raspberry jam is Scrumptious! Who would have thought that all that would go together so well?! They are super simple to make and always turn out great!

1 egg
1/4 cup milk
4-6 slices of turkey
4-6 slices of ham (I like Virginia baked ham)
4 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices of white bread
Powdered sugar
Raspberry jam

In a bowl beat the egg and milk together. Take a slice of bread top it with turkey, ham, Swiss cheese and another slice of bread. Gently dip both sides of sandwich into egg/milk mixture and then place in a frying pan or on electric skillet. Cook until both sides are browned. Place on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Put Raspberry jam on the side to dip sandwich in (optional). Absolutely YUMMY!!!
