The Cabot® Ver-Monte Cristo Sandwich

Our Monte Cristo Sandwich, featured in the new Cabot Creamery Cookbook, is an easy and yummy twist on this classic ham and cheese sandwich - and an extremely satisfying one at that! If you’re not familiar with the original Monte Cristo, it’s made with ham, cheese, a bit of mustard, and mayonnaise, then dipped in egg, and cooked just like French toast. Here, we use ham or cooked sausage patties, grated sharp cheddar, Granny Smith apple slices, a thinly sliced shallot or small onion, and apple cider vinegar. You are going to love this version!
