Low Fat Whole Wheat Monte Cristo Sandwich
Reduced fat version of the classic Monte Cristo sandwich. Use low-fat milk, whole wheat bread and skimmed milk Swiss cheese. Still big on flavor.
whole wheat bread
bacon, canadian style
or black forest ham
In shallow bowl combine egg, milk, Parmesan cheese, and pepper. Set aside.
Place Canadian bacon (or black forest ham) and swiss cheese on one slice bread.
Top with remaining slice of bread.
Dip sandwich into the egg mixture, turning several times until as much liquid as possible has been absorbed.
In small nonstick skillet heat margarine until bubbly and hot; add sandwich, pouring any remaing egg mixture over bread.
Cook over medium heat turning once, until brown and crisp on both sides. Several minutes per side.
