Monte Cristo Sandwiches
These sandwiches can stretch the last of the leftover roast chicken. Pull the meat from the bones and cut into small bits. Place chicken in between cheese slices. Proceed as recipe directs.
4 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
8 slices of white bread
8 slices of roast chicken
8 slices of Swiss cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
Blend 2 tablespoons butter and mustard in a small bowl until smooth. Spread on 4 slices of bread.
Alternate slices of chicken and cheese on bread. Top with remaining 4 slices of bread.
Combine eggs, milk and salt in a medium bowl; mix with a fork until well blended. Heat remaining butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Dip sandwiches into egg mixture with a large spatula, letting excess drip back into bowl. Add sandwiches to skillet; fry until golden, about 2 minutes per side.
If you are in a hurry, purchase presliced chicken and Swiss cheese from the deli counter at your favorite grocery store.
