Monte Cristo - Shelle's Healthier Version

Ever since I have taken my small human to Movie Tavern and he experienced his first Monte Cristo he has been hooked. Who could possibly turn down sweet and salty in a sandwich!! Since then I have been trying several at home versions of the recipe, and this is the one that we have found to be the best. It is made on a panini press or indoor grill -cough George Foreman cough- so there is no extra oil other than what is added to the egg wash.

Enjoy... we sure do!

Monte Cristo Sandwiches (makes 4)
* 8 slices whole grain (or sourdough) bread
* 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
* 1/2 lb. thinly sliced ham
* 4 thin slices Swiss cheese
* 1/2 lb. thinly sliced turkey
* 4 thin slices Provolone cheese
* 2 eggs, beaten
* 2 Tbsp. milk
* 1 Tbsp. oil
* 1 cup finely crushed crispy rice cereal
* powdered sugar
* strawberry jam

Spread one side of each bread slice with Dijon mustard. Make sandwiches with the two kinds of cheese and the ham and turkey slices.
In a bowl, combine egg, milk, and oil and beat well. Place crushed cereal on a shallow plate. Dip each sandwich briefly into egg mixture, then into cereal mixture to coat.
Grill sandwiches on a dual contact grill or panini grill until crisp and brown.
Sprinkle hot sandwiches with powdered sugar and serve with strawberry jam for dipping.
