But seriously, I couldn't resist.
Which makes me think of The Count of Monte Cristo, have you seen it? I love that movie. It's been a while... Time for a viewing, I think, while eating a sandwich that shares (don't know exactly why) the same name.
So without further adieu, here is the recipe that you asked for. It's good. It's easy. It doesn't make kids cry. What more could a girl ask for?
Monte Cristo SandwichesIngredients to serve four:
Ultra thin sliced deli meat of your choice
Cheese or combination of cheeses of your choice. Sliced or shredded. Same diff.
Pillsbury Crescent rolls. One can makes four sandwiches. Plan accordingly.
Jam. We are boysenberry fans here, but raspberry or strawberry would work fine too. But boysenberry is better.
Spray it with Pam.
These guys tend to stick, or the cheese melts out the sides. Who wants to scrape melted cheese?
Unroll the crescent rolls, making sure to keep them in rectangles. See how two triangles make a rectangle? Your high school geometry teacher was right, you will use it in the future.
With your finger, lightly press together the seams where the triangles meet.
Layer on a few pieces of meat.
Seal edges by pressing down with your fingers.
(Aren't you glad you used foil?)
How easy was that?
Hope you love them as much as we do.
My husband learned how to make these in college from his pastor, and he made them for me on one of our first dates. How could I not marry the guy? He had me at Monte Cristo.
*In the spirit of full disclosure, I only made two sandwiches today. One being, there was just bald baby and I eating lunch together, and two, I may or may not have used the other four Crescent rolls this morning to make Nutella Croissants. For the love of all things hazelnut, they were soooo good. Evil good. Sparkles and unicorns good. I'm in big trouble good. I wish I made all eight good.
So make those too. You know, to use up the extra Crescents.
