Disney Recipe: Monte Cristo Sandwich from Disneyland

Spread the love

This amazing sandwich is, hands down, my most favorite meal in all of Disneyland, and whether I have it during lunch at Blue Bayou, or I stop in Cafe Orleans, one thing is certain: I will make time and room for one on every single visit!

But if you haven’t the opportunity to journey westward, you’re in luck! Because today, we’re sharing the recipe for this showstopper right here. So go ahead and make one at home. It won’t replace the beautiful scenery around New Orleans Square, but if you close your eyes, you might be able to pretend. That’s totally my plan. ;-)

It’s been a little too long since I’ve had a chance to travel to Disneyland. I can always tell when I need to schedule a trip, because I start dreaming of having a Monte Cristo Sandwich!

Blue Bayou Monte Cristo Sandwich

Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 egg
1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons water
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
8 slices egg bread (challah works well), sliced 1/2-inch thick
8 thin slices ham
8 thin slices turkey
8 thin slices Swiss cheese (make it meatless by removing turkey and ham and including a couple more cheese choices!)
3 cups canola oil
Confectioners sugar
Blackberry preserves

Directions:
Line a cookie sheet with paper towels; set aside.

Whisk the egg and water together in a mixing bowl. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and whisk thoroughly for 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth, scraping sides of bowl.

On one slice of bread, arrange 2 slices of ham, turkey, and cheese, covering the bread evenly. Place another slice of bread on top and slice each sandwich in half diagonally.

Heat oil to between 365 degrees F and 375 degrees F in a 10-inch pan. Do not let the oil reach a higher temperature than this; if the oil starts to smoke, turn the heat down. Dip half of the sandwich into the batter, allowing excess to drain, and very carefully place into the oil.

Repeat with the other sandwich half. Cook 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Place the cooked sandwich on the prepared cookie sheet in a warm oven until ready to serve. Repeat with the other three sandwiches.
