“Simple and wholesome, this sandwich is the lower fat cousin of the "Monte Cristo", which would be sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with preserves for dipping. You'll find this version healthy and satisfying, the perfect mate for your summer tomatoes. From the kitchens of the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Texas.”
