Let's face it. The Monte Cristo is a weird, weird sandwich. Seriously, I'd like to know what stoner dreamed up that dish! Ham and cheese with jam and mustard served on French toast. It doesn't even sound good. But for some reason, it is.
When Laura from Peace By Pastries posted her recipe for a Vegan Monte Cristo, I knew I had to give a shot:
In a word — delicious! I used Yves Meatless Deli Ham, Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheddar (though I believe a white "cheeze" would be even better), and Ezekial bread. I chose organic grape jelly (my fave!) and spicy brown mustard for condiments. The bread is battered in a cinnamon-y French toast that I wouldn't mind eating on its own for breakfast sometime.
Don't be scared! Try Laura's Monte Cristo!
