Thoughts Before Cooking:
I received this book as a Christmas present one year and was astounded at all the things you could make with Kellogg’s products.
I had heard of Monte Cristos before, but they always had jelly and cheese which sounds really gross to me.
This was jelly free so I thought I would test it out and see.
- 5 Cups of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
- 3 Large Egg Whites
- 3/4 Cup of Fat-Free Milk
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt, or to Taste
- 12 Slices of Day Old White or Wheat Bread
- Approximately 1/4 Cup of Dijon Mustard, or to Taste
- 6 Medium Thick Slices of Smoked Ham
- 6 Medium Thick Slices of Swiss, American, or Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Tablespoon of Butter (Melted) or Olive Oil
- Butter or Nonstick Cooking Spray
- Place the Rice Krispies in a resealable bag. Seal the bag, and using a rolling pin, lightly crush the cereal to make a medium crumb.
- Open the bag and measure the crumbs, there should be 2 cups. Transfer the crumbs to a shallow bowl and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Set aside.
- Place the egg whites, milk, and salt in a shallow bowl. Using a whisk, beat until foamy.
- Place the six slices of bread on a flat surface. Using a spatula, coat the bread with mustard-as thin or as thick as you like.
- Place a piece of ham and then a slice of cheese on top of each piece. Top with remaining slice of bread.
- Working with one at a time, dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture, turning to coat both sides. Quickly press each side into the crumbs, pressing down to insure that the crumbs adhere to the bread.
- Place the coated sandwiches in the prepared baking pan. When all the sandwiches are in the pan, give a light drizzle of melted butter, or olive oil, to each one.
- Bake in the preheated oven, without turning for about 15 mins, or until crisp and golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and serve with additional mustard if desired.
