How to Make a Monte Cristo English Muffin Sandwich
Since I love to mix things up, I decided to use Thomas Original Nooks and Crannies English Muffin instead of a thicker brioche bread.
I dipped the fork split English muffin in the egg custard batter and cooked it on a buttered griddle until both sides were fully cooked.
I then stuffed it with sweet sliced ham and American cheese. Lastly, I dusted it with powdered sugar and served it.
The end result = total deliciousness that my entire family loved! We enjoyed this sandwich for dinner because Thomas English Muffins are perfect for ANY time of day or meal.
You can find Thomas’ Original Nooks and Crannies English Muffins at Walmart. Other delicious varieties available include Thomas’ Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins and Thomas’ Light Multi-Grain English Muffins.
