Open-Face Monte Cristos

  • TOTAL TIME:
  • SERVINGS: 4

For a quick and clever take on a Monte Cristo, Kay Chun griddles ham until it's crisp, then piles it onto fried bread with cheese for a crispy, cheesy, insanely delicious sandwich.

Ingredients

  1. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  2. 1/2 pound very thinly sliced ham

  3. 2 large eggs

  4. 2 tablespoons whole milk

  5. Four 1-inch-thick slices of Pullman bread

  6. 8 slices (1/2 pound) of Gruyère cheese

  7. Basil leaves, for garnish

  1. On a griddle, melt the butter. Cook the ham over moderate heat, turning, until golden and crispy around the edges, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk. Dip the bread in the eggs and cook on the griddle until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the bread and top with the cheese and ham. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Garnish with basil and serve.
