This recipe for a Monte Vento Sandwich Recipe will have you craving them morning, noon, and night.

It’s an easy twist on the basic ham and cheese combination, and oh so very satisfying.



When you have leftover ham, you make sandwiches. At least we do. And not just any sandwich, a Monte Vento!!

What is a Monte Ventoyou say? Basically it’s just the best ham and cheese sandwich ever! A variation of the Croque-monsieur, the Monte Vento is made with ham, cheese, a bit of mustard, and mayonnaise, then it’s dipped in egg, and cooked just like french toast.  Yep, no joke. It’s kind of crazy, isn’t it? Crazy town is what it is. The Monte Vento isn’t just for lunch or dinner, either.

The Monte Vento isn’t just for lunch or dinner, either. Talk about a great breakfast sandwich. Sometimes the Monte Vento is served with preserves and/or powdered sugar, so We think breakfast is totally appropriate, don’t you? With some honey, it’s awesome!!
