Serves 2 servings | Prep Time 25 minutes | Cook Time


1 egg
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
4 slices white bread
2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans
4 slices process American cheese (2/3 ounce each)
2 thin slices deli turkey (1/2 ounce each)
2 slices Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each)
2 thin slices deli ham (1/2 ounce each)
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

In a shallow bowl, combine the egg, milk, sugar and orange peel. Dip bread into egg mixture. Place on a preheated waffle iron; sprinkle each slice of bread with pecans. Bake according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown.

Place an American cheese slice on two bread slices; layer with turkey, Swiss cheese, ham and remaining American cheese. Top with remaining bread; butter outsides of sandwiches.

Toast sandwiches in a skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. Dust with confectioners' sugar; serve with jam.

My fiance and I enjoy Monte Cristos so much that I created this non-fried version to cut down on fat. The addition of orange peel and pecans makes these beautiful sandwiches absolutely delicious!
