PIZZA MONTE CRISTO


I created this recipe really by accident. Like many of you home cooks out there I was looking to make a typical sandwich for lunch. I had looked over and over again in my fridge for some type of "magical" ingredient that would perk up my every day sandwich, then it came to me. I saw some leftover tomato sauce that I had used for my beef stew the night before and thought why couldn't I make a pizza sandwich. For me the topper was when I decided on pan frying it well wooo all I can say is yum!

Serves 1 (just double up on the recipe if serving more)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Rye bread slices
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 ham or chicken deli meat slices
  • cheddar or mozzarella cheese slice
  • onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 heaping tbsp of tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp butter or olive oil

Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Meantime, take a slice of rye bread and layer it first with cheddar cheese, deli meat, and onion. Then take a heaping tablespoon of tomato sauce and spread it around on the other slice of bread that will go on top of the sandwich.

In a medium shallow bowl, beat an egg and add in the 2 tbsp of milk. At this point drizzle in the olive oil into the preheated skillet. Take the sandwich and carefully dip it into the egg mixture on both sides. Make sure that the bread soaks up all of the egg mixture. Fry it on the pan and flip it over when the egg soaked bread has nicely crisped up. This should take literally a minute or two per side. Slice the sandwich in half and enjoy.
