Monte Cristo Waffle-Wiches


  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 8 slices white or brioche bread

  • 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

  • 1/4 pound deli-sliced ham

  • 1/4 pound deli-sliced turkey

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


Pre-heat a waffle iron to medium heat. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Brush the waffle maker with the melted butter. Build the sandwiches: one slice of bread, some cheese, a slice of ham, a slice of turkey, more cheese and another piece of bread. Turn the sandwiches in the batter and place in the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron and cook for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with an arugula salad alongside.
