National Monte Cristo Day
Sometimes it’s hard to get enough of a good idea. But you can make a good one even better. One such thing is the Monte Cristo Sandwich. This amazing combination of french toast and club sandwiches is something you should try. National Monte Cristo Day celebrates the best of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
According to legend, a cook decided to create a way to bring light and joy to the people living under Tooley Fog’s oppressive cloudy skies on a foggy day in the Bay Area. The culinary world’s greatest hero walked into their kitchen to discover what food could withstand the fog and lift the clouds to bring smiles to their customers. The miracle of the Monte Cristo Sandwich emerged from the kitchen. It was steaming and golden brown and was dusted with maple syrup and powdered sugar.
First, a Club sandwich was revealed. It had been coated in French Toast batter and grilled until it was golden brown. This sandwich is probably the best in the world. It combines sweet and savory with the rising zing from sourdough. National Monte Cristo Day celebrates those who are bold enough to try new culinary experiences and have the taste buds to appreciate combinations of flavors that others may find too complex.
The magic of the Monte Cristo Sandwich can be found at many high-end restaurants, even if you don’t want to make your own masterpiece. If you’ve never had the chance to enjoy this amazing sandwich, we encourage you to go out and try it. You can also make a club sandwich with the regular sourdough and a simple french-toast dip. You shouldn’t skip the bacon, turkey, and ham. After it is assembled, dip it into the french toast mix. Grill it until golden brown on a hot skillet. Serve it with butter, syrup, powdered sugar and a drizzle of honey.
