How do you make a Monte Cristo?

ipsedixit | Apr 23, 2013 11:40 AM

A recent post on a regional board got me wondering about how people make their Monte Cristo sandwiches at home.

What kind of bread do you use? White? Brioche? Something else?

Or do you gild the lily and use, say, French Toast?

What about the stuff inside. Ham and turkey? Both, or just one or the other?

Or do you get creative with the meat. Say, use something like Serrano ham (or "real" Black Forest Ham), or go ethnic with prosciutto or ghetto with Oscar Meyer Bologna or gnarly with something like Scrapple?

And the cheese. What kind of cheese do you use? Swiss? Cheddar? Something more exotic?

Do tell.
