Creme Brulee Monte Cristo Sandwich

This inspired take on a Monte Cristo sandwich will make your jaw drop open—to take another bite as quickly as possible! While traditional Monte Cristos are pan-toasted like grilled cheese, this one gets a wash of egg, butter, and sugar before going under the broiler. The result is a creme brulee-like crust and an incredibly delicious sandwich. Get the recipe here.
