“A "Best of" Inn Cuisine, Recipe Courtesy Aska Lodge B&B. One of the best Monte Cristo's you'll ever eat.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (12 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (can use reduced fat)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 6 ounces sliced smoked turkey breast
  • 6 ounces sliced smoked ham
  • 6 ounces sliced muenster cheese
  • 12 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon sesame (for topping) or 1 tablespoon poppy seed (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 standard cookie sheets (or jelly roll pans) with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Separate crescent roll dough into 4 long rectangles (2 rectangles per package) and lay rectangles onto cookie sheets (or jelly roll pans) so there are 2 rectangles of dough per baking sheet and edges/sides are not touching. Brush tops of rectangles with melted butter and honey, reserving approximately 1 tablespoon of each. Bake rectangles for 8 minutes, then remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes. Carefully loosen partially-baked rectangles from baking sheets and get ready to layer sandwich.
  2. Using a 10×15″ baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray for easy clean-up), place 1 partially-baked rectangle (buttered & honeyed side up) and top with sliced turkey. Top turkey with 2nd rectangle and layer with sliced ham and Muenster cheese. Top ham & Muenster with 3rd rectangle and layer evenly with raspberry jam. Top jam with 4th and final rectangle, brushing top of dough with reserved butter & honey and sprinkling with sesame or poppy seeds as desired. Bake sandwich at 375 degrees F for 10-15 minutes, depending on the accuracy of your oven. Crust should appear lightly browned on top and cheese should be melted. Remove from oven, allow to cool at least 5 minutes, then slice into 6-8 servings.
