I remember the first time that I ordered a Monte Cristo sandwich at a restaurant. It was at a bar/restaurant that we frequent and Troy and I were out with my parents. I believe it was even before Adalyn was born. We were celebrating something and when looking over the specials that the restaurant was having for the day, I spotted a Monte Cristo sandwich. It sounded so unique that I had to order it.

I love all sweet and salty combinations and the combination of the cheese, sweet raspberry jam and savory ham and turkey is so perfect on this sandwich. Anytime I see one of these on the menu, there is about a 90% chance that I am going to order it. They are super tasty and actually easy to make.

Another thing that I love about this recipe is that it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or a snack if you are pretty hungry). Since it is served on a waffle, it is perfect for breakfast. Because it is filling and has meats and cheese, it is great for lunch or dinner.

There are a few variations that you can make with this sandwich. If you prefer strawberry jam to raspberry, feel free to use that. If you do not eat ham, just use turkey. You could also substitute chicken lunch meat. Finally, you can use mozzarella cheese if you do not have Swiss cheese. Up to you! I decided to make this sandwich with classic ingredients since I love it this way so much.

I was a little worried that Troy would not like this sandwich because he is not the biggest fan of fruit and is not obsessed with the sweet/savory combo that I am but I was wrong! He enjoyed it. Adalyn ate a whole half of a sandwich (which is pretty good for a 2 1/2 year old). I of course loved it.

For this recipe, I used Eggo waffles which now colors and flavors from natural sources which includes the whole line of Eggo products at Walmart. We are fans of having frozen waffles on hand for quick breakfasts. I picked up some of the Eggo blueberry waffles and the Eggo Nutri-Grain Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffles which are both delicious.

Each morning when my daughter wakes up, she asks us for a waffle. She loves hers topped with peanut butter and jelly. My two year old knows what she likes. Many days before work, Troy has two frozen waffles which are great because they are ready in no time. He tops his with syrup.
