A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich that is dipped in an egg batter before frying and it often comes in a sweet version where strawberry or raspberry jam or powdered sugar is served on top of the savory sandwich.
When I made the jalapeno jelly I could not help but think about what kinds of sandwiches it would be good in and the monte cristo was the first thing that came to mind and I was convinced that a Bacon and avocado monte cristo sandwich with jalapeno jelly was the way to go!
This sandwich is pretty simple to make where you just cook the bacon, assemble the sandwich with bread, cheese, Bacon, avocado and jalapeno jam before dipping it in a french toast style egg milk batter and pan frying it until the cheese has melted and the bread is nice and golden brown and crispy. This sandwich has an amazing blend of sweet and savory along with a spicy kick and it's perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner! I like to top these Bacon and avocado monte cristo sandwiches with jalapeno jelly off with a fried egg with a runny yolk, croque madame or croque monsieur style!
