recipe: peach, three cheese, and prosciutto monte cristo

I have never made a monte cristo before, I have had it in restaurants, so I decided to make one myself. This is my version of a monte cristo.

Many flavors make up this sandwich, spicy cheese, sweet jam, and the aged parmesan, I love conflicting flavors right now. So interesting, and yummy.

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 3 slices prosciutto
  • cheddar cheese
  • parmesan cheese
  • pepper jack cheese
  • handful baby spinach
  • tablespoon dijon mustard
  • tablespoon peach jam
  • 1 egg
  • splash milk
  • butter

Whisk the egg and milk in a small bowl, transfer to a plate.

Build the sandwich, layer cheeses, and prosciutto on the bread. Heat a small skillet over medium heat skillet and melt a tablespoon of butter in it. Dip each side of the sandwich in the egg mixture. Place the sandwich in the skilet, put a plate ontop, and then a heavy can on top of the plate (to create a pinene effect). Cook on each side until lightly browned, and cheeses are melted.

Open the sandwich, spread one pieace of the bread with a heavy layer of mustard, and the other with jam, then  add spinach.




sometimes i feel…

…like the only one in the whole world

…like I am sitting at the door of opportunity.

…like I am riding the fence.

….like I am bound to fall.

…like I am lost in the brambles of life.
