“National Monte Cristo Day” is Saturday, September 17 and we here at Boca Grove know the best way to celebrate. Have lunch in the Boca Grove Grille Room and have our Monte Cristo sandwich that is on the menu. We are even going to take it one step further with the “Boca Grove Monte Cristo Sandwich with Raspberry Maple Syrup” recipe from our Executive Chef Dominick Laudia.
For the Monte Cristo Sandwich:
8 slices Challah Bread, 1/2” slices
8 oz. Turkey, Sliced
8 oz. Ham, Sliced
8 oz. Swiss Cheese, Sliced
8 each Eggs, Beaten
4 oz. Cooking Oil
Take two slices of the Challah bread and fill with 2 ounces each of turkey, ham and Swiss cheese.
Repeat to make three more sandwiches.
Heat the cooking oil in a skillet.
Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture.
Place a sandwich in the hot skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown on each side.
Remove from the pan and place on a baking sheet.
Repeat the process with the remaining three sandwiches.
Place the baking sheet with the sandwiches in a 350-degree oven for five minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Cut in half diagonally.
For the Raspberry Maple Syrup:
2 cup Maple Syrup
1 cup Fresh Raspberries
Combine both ingredients in a sauce pot.
Simmer until the raspberries soften.
Remove from heat, strain and serve.
Place each sandwich on a plate and serve with the raspberry maple syrup and fresh raspberries.
You are now prepared to make food just like the fabulous kitchen staff at Boca Grove, or you can just stop in for lunch and have them cook it for you.
