Disneyland Cristo Sandwich

If you’ve been to Disneyland, you know exactly what I’m talking about here. Just about every visit, I like to visit Cafe Orleans located in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square to enjoy the famous Monte Cristo Sandwich with a side of their delicious Pomme Frites too. I was so excited to find an Original recipe from the D23 website.

How To Make a Monte Cristo

  1. Fill a medium size saucepan just over 1/4 full with Canola or Vegetable oil. Heat to 375 degrees F.
  2. To prepare the batter, place flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Stir in water and egg, mixing until well combined.
  3. To prepare sandwiches, layer bottom slices of bread with a slice of Swiss cheese, 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of ham and another slice of Swiss Cheese. Close with top slice of bread then cut into fourths. Place a toothpick in each sandwich slice.
  4. Coat all sides of sandwich triangle with batter. I used a spoon to help coat both sides, instead of dipping. Carefully place one sandwich at a time in hot oil. Cook each side until golden brown. Remove and place onto a paper towel lined plate to drain oil. Continue until all have been coated.
  5. Dust warm sandwiches with powdered sugar, cut in half and place onto a serving plate with grapes, a few strawberries and blackberry jam for dipping. Enjoy warm.

Once you get the sandwich put together, cut into fourths and stick a toothpick into each quarter.

When you oil is heated to 375 degrees F., have your sandwiches and batter close by so you can be efficient during the frying portion.

Use a large spoon to help coat all sides of sandwich with batter. I found it easier to do this method rather than dipping the sandwich directly into the batter. Your fingers get messy, once the sandwich is in the oil, wash your hands in between frying each sandwich.

When all sandwiches have been fried and drained onto a paper towel plate, dust with powdered sugar.
