When a grilled cheese just won’t do, it’s got to be a Monte Cristo. Like most comfort foods the variations are endless. I learned to make Monte Cristos by dipping a ham and Swiss sandwich in egg and frying it. I learned to make Cubans by pressing and grilling a sandwich of ham, Swiss, dill pickle, and pulled pork. So if I’ve left of the pulled pork but dipped the sandwich in egg do I have a Monte Cristo with dill pickles or a Cuban with egg instead of pork?
Perhaps the answer will be clear after I eat them. I enjoy them dipped in homemade ketchup. This doubles the comfort of this comfort food! How do you enjoy your Monte Cristo Cubans?
