Monte Cristo Sandwich - it doesn't get any better than this!

On our trip to Disneyland, Patti and I snuck away from the clan to have lunch among the fireflies at the Blue Bayou Cafe. It was hands down my favorite part of the trip. The food and the company were comforting and familiar.

After we returned home, Patti did some research and found the recipes to my two favorite dishes - the Blue Bayou Monte Cristo Sandwich and Pirates Gumbo. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Here's the recipe for the Monte Cristo - THE best sandwich in the world...of course eating it with one of your favorite people in the world makes it taste better too. Miss you Patti.

Blue Bayou Monte Cristo Sandwich

1 1/2 Cups - All-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 Teaspoon - Salt
1 Tablespoon - Baking powder
1 1/3 cups - Water
1 - Egg

Sift flour, salt and baking powder together.

Add water to beaten egg, then add to flour mixture and mix well. Set aside.

1 Ounce - Sliced white meat of turkey
1 Ounce - Sliced Swiss cheese
1 Ounce - Sliced ham2 Slices - Egg Bread

Make a sandwich using turkey first, then Swiss cheese, and then ham.

Cut sandwich into quarters using toothpicks to hold sandwich together.

Dip sandwich in egg batter and fry in 360 degrees canola oil until golden brown.

Remove toothpicks and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve with raspberry jelly presented as a dipping sauce.
