| Imagine crossing a slice of Toast with Butter and Raspberry Jam, with ... French Toast. Sounds pretty good, right? A warm, sweet and inviting way to start the day.|
Now, imagine crossing that idea with ... a Ham and Cheese Sandwich! BWHAA?!
I had my first Monte Cristo at a tiny Bistro-ette, in Santa Monica, CA about ... 10 years ago. I'd never even heard of it, but ... there it was ... on the menu and ... it called to me. I ordered it, ate it and ... promptly ordered another one! It's satisfying in a way that transcends French Toast ... or a Ham Sandwich. It's a bizarre combination, but it's strangely delicious, from a variety of angles!
Now, take all these ideas and know that ... this is one of the meals you can eat while leading a low carb way of life! WOW! ... right?!
Note: Just about any low carb bread should do the trick. Just make sure that the bread has absorbed a decent portion of the egg mixture, prior to frying. Also, just about any flavor jam will work. Orange marmalade might be interesting, as would strawberry, blackberry, currant, fig, etc.
