Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time: 55 Minutes
  • Cook time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon(s) water
  • all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 of 17.3 ounce package pepperidge farm puffy pastry sheets thawed
  • 8 thin slices deli black forest ham
  • 4 slices deli swiss cheese
  • confectioners sugar
  • pure maple syrup


1.Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

2.Sprinkle the flour on the work suface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut into 4 (6-inch) squares. Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg mixture.

3.With a corner of 1 pastry facing you, place 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese on the bottom half of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastries. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.

4.Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with the maple syrup.

5.Easy Substitution: For a savory twist, serve with Dijon-style mustard instead of the maple syrup.
