Lovin' A Pimped-Out Sandwich

Monte Cristo Sandwich
Monte Cristo Sandwich

Made with 15-grain bread, sliced turkey, sliced Virginia ham, Swiss cheese, butter, eggs, milk, salt & pepper, and topped with confectioner’s sugar.

I, for one, love a well-made sandwich with a side of sour cream & onion potato chips.  It was a little bit of work to make this Monte Cristo Sandwich, but it was worth it.  I used 15-grain bread for my tasty sandwich, though, instead of white bread—and it was just as delicious.

I had doubts at first about sprinkling the confectioner’s sugar on top (I thought it would mess it up as far as the taste goes—sugar with turkey?)—but it was actually right on time!  The touch of sweetness with the sandwich was perfection.  Who knew?

Recipe for—Monte Cristo Sandwich

Made with 15-grain bread, Thousand Island salad dressing, sliced turkey, Swiss cheese; topped with angel hair coleslaw mixed with butter, white vinegar, sugar, and salt & pepper.

Boy, now this here Grilled Turkey Reuben Sandwich was DELISH!  I think the Thousand Island salad dressing is partly what set this off in the mouth.  ‘Yum Yum’ is all I can say.  Again, I used 15-grain bread instead of the rye bread.  I’m not too fond of rye.

I’m also not a coleslaw person, but the coleslaw together with the salad dressing made this sandwich divine.  I ate at least 3 of these sandwiches that day—with two of them being eaten back-to-back.

And I absolutely love, love, love my panini maker.  I love the grill marks it gives to sandwiches—and, frankly, it’s just fun to use and press things inside it.  I love warming and making sandwiches with the panini press.  You should get one, too.

Ham, Gruyere, & Apple Panini Sandwich
Ham, Gruyère, & Apple Panini Sandwich

Made with 15-grain bread, Black Forest smoked ham, Granny Smith apples, butter, fresh thyme, shredded Gruyère cheese, and whole grain mustard.

I was, at first, concerned with putting the apples onto this Ham, Gruyère, & Apple Panini Sandwich—but it actually turned out ok.  I’ve just never done the fruit thing on a sandwich before so I was having second thoughts.

But, we all know I like trying new things out—you only live once.  Glad I did.  It was a new and different experience for me.  Once again—I used 15-grain bread instead of the white bread that the recipe calls for.

Turkey Sandwich

This is just your basic homemade Turkey Sandwich with toppings I threw together myself.

  • Whole grain 15-grain bread
  • Oven roasted turkey
  • Co-jack cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard

Eaten with a side of red grapes, sweet potato tortilla chips, barbecue potato chips, and organic strawberry lemonade.  Mmm, hmm, yeah.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, throw together a homemade sandwich for yourself and pimp it out with all your favorite delicious toppings and sit back and enjoy that bad boy!  Or better yet, try a new sandwich recipe you’ve never had before.  You’re missing out on so much yummy goodness.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Invest in a panini press/maker.  It makes your sandwiches look beautifully and taste crunchy scrumptious.

  1. I have just had a cheese sandwich for breakfast. It lacked the turkey and lettuce, but was good. Next time I shall pop in some turkey. Thanks for sharing. Have a pleasant day!
