A good start, but I was still missing the Monte Cristo's signature crunch that comes with the usual deep fry. If you'd like another option, try this recipe for something that is still light and healthy, but is closer to the original intent. Made it last night, and it was great! http://thelawstudentswife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-monte-cristo.html

I loved this recipe. So good! And my sandwich did have a nice light crunch on the outside, Will definitely do this again.

Agreed, this doesn't have the crunch I expected, but still a tasty and quick upscale sandwich. I put the jam on the inside but otherwise made as directed. Any suggestions on how to crisp it up are appreciated.
