    Has anyone here ever had a Monte Cristo Sandwich? If not then it's safe to say you are missing out for sure.

    I should mention that it's LOADED with Calories and fat so if you are trying to keep the extra pounds off, it might not be something you want to check out.

    If you've decided to risk it, here's a link to what looks like one of the better recipes for making one.

    It takes some time but the results are more than worth it. It's REALLY good also when you have some raspberry preserves to dip it in as you eat it.

    There was a restaurant in Colorado that used to make them, and it was all that I would eat. Greatest sandwich in the world, hands down.

    I've been to a few places that have them but I don't remember the names. Do you remember the name of the place in Colorado? If it's still in business I'd probably check it out and grab one of these.

    I also agree that it's the best sandwich in the world. I think that saying only rings true if a pro makes it though. I don't think I could make it right if I tried. I may attempt it if I can't find a place with them though.

    Hmm...If my memory serves me, the restaurant was named Grandmas. It was a little restaurant in Woodland Park, I believe. And I agree. The only reason I haven t made myself a Monte Cristo is that I don't want to ruin it for myself.

    Oh, I am so trying this one of these days. That looks really good. I think I remember you telling me about this once, Steve.

    I don't like ham or mustard, but this sandwich does sound pretty good. I might try making it sometime without that crap, maybe substitute them for something else.

    You could probably get close by using sliced turkey. I don't think it would be as good but if you don't like ham in the first place you probably won't mind. Mustard isn't a key ingredient though so that won't matter.

    Grape jelly is a fantastic addition to this sandwich.
