The Jarlsberg® Monte Cristo

Output: 4 portions


  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 C milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 C coarsely grated Jarlsberg®, separated
  • 8 slices white loaf bread
  • 8 slices of ham
  • 8 small sage leaves
  • 4 tbsp. butter, separated


Whisk the eggs and milk together with the salt. Using 1½ C Jarlsberg®, sprinkle each slice of bread with cheese, then lay 2 slices of ham on 4 of the slices. Close the sandwiches. Briefly soak each side in the egg mixture. Garnish each with two sage leaves, and sprinkle the outside with the remaining cheese. Fry each sandwich in a tablespoon of butter over low heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden.
