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:

  • Use an excellent nonstick skillet for cooking these sandwiches, although a cast iron pan would give some good color to the sandwiches.
  • If you want to dip your sandwich, a small ramekin or cup for the jam will be super helpful.
  • It is easy to adjust the dish to suit a person's liking. You can use any deli meat and cheese as well.
  • The mixture of eggs and milk can be seasoned with salt, pepper, or herbs. In case you're a sweet tooth, add some vanilla sugar or cinnamon.

Weight Loss Tips

  • 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.
