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.

wow

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Open the bag and measure the crumbs, there should be 2 cups. Transfer the crumbs to a shallow bowl and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Set aside.
  5. Place the egg whites, milk, and salt in a shallow bowl. Using a whisk, beat until foamy.
  6. 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.
  7. Place a piece of ham and then a slice of cheese on top of each piece. Top with remaining slice of bread.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven, without turning for about 15 mins, or until crisp and golden brown.
  11. Remove from the oven and serve with additional mustard if desired.
