Ghost of Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, October 2005


  • 4 slices Sara Lee Country Potato Bakery Bread
  • 4 slices Sara Lee Baby Swiss Cheese
  • 2 slices Sara Lee Oven Roasted Breast of Turkey
  • 2 slices Sara Lee Virginia Brand Baked Ham
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Lay bread slices on work surface. On 2 bread slices, place 1 slice cheese, 1 slice turkey, 1 slice ham, and 1 more slice of cheese; top each with remaining bread slice.

  2. Using a 5-by-4-inch ghost-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a ghost-shaped sandwich; repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside.

  3. In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt.

  4. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture to coat well on both sides, and place in skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

    These did not work that well for me, probably because we don't have Sara Lee here, but I substituted deli ham and deli turkey, and some nice french emmentaler cheese, however, the sandwiches didn't work out they kind of fell apart.
