If you are a regular sandwich eater, you know how important it is for your snack to have a savory crust. Our Monte Cristo sandwich by a renewed recipe will meet all your gourmet expectations. It's perfect for regular meals and even for special occasions. Besides, it's super nourishing as it contains 40 g of protein and 48 g of carbs per one portion size. To make the sandwich most immaculately, use the following tips:
Buckwheat (or corn/rice) bread
80 g (2 pieces)
7 g (½ tbsp)
5 g (1 tbsp)
50 g (2 slices)
50 g (2 slices)
50 g (½ cup)
55 g (1 pieces)
Reduced fat 2% milk
50 g (⅕ cup)
Please follow the next steps:
Spread low-fat mayonnaise on one side of one bread slice.
Then spread mustard on one side of the remaining bread slice and top with alternate slices of turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese.
Cover the sandwich with the remaining slice of bread, mayonnaise side down.
Beat egg and milk in a bowl until well whisked.
Sprinkle oil in a small skillet over medium heat.
Dip the sandwich into the whisked mixture to coat on both sides.
Place the sandwich in the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot, adding a mint leaf if desired.
Choose sourdough, Ezekiel bread, or low-calorie wraps instead of toast bread made of white flour. In most cases, these options are lower in calories and often contain more minerals, vitamins, and macronutrients than highly-processed types of bread.
Buy a pack of egg whites, so you can swap a part of your whole eggs in an omelet or scrambled eggs with a less calorie-dense substance and richer in protein.
To remove excess fat from a dish, take an ice cube and wrap it in a napkin. Run it over the product to absorb the grease.
