Tasty Tuesday: Monte Cristo Sandwich
Today's Recipe comes from Passionate Penny Pincher
This is not the greatest meal deal around (unless you’re willing to make a Kroger run!), but I was too excited about it not to share! I’m betting many of you will have quite a bit of this in your stockpile, and hopefully the few items you do need won’t add up to much. Here’s the recipe . . .
2 8 oz cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
3 tablespoons Butter, melted
3 tablespoons Honey
6 ounces Thinly sliced smoked Turkey
6 ounces Medium sliced meunster cheese
6 ounces thinly sliced cooked ham
½ cup Red raspberry preserves (Could substitute with Strawberry if you have it on hand)
Press crescent rolls into eight large rectangles (four per package of crescent rolls). Melt butter and honey in microwave for 30 seconds, brush over rolls, reserving a small amount. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes (until lightly browned). Cool for 10 minutes.
OK, now you’re going to layer these like lasagna (the crescent rolls will be your “noodles”). Place turkey on top of first crescent sheet, then cover with another crescent sheet. Next layer ham and cheese, then another sheet of crescent rolls. Finally layer with jam and one more sheet of crescent rolls (this just sounds so yummy, I’m about to hop out of my chair and make it this morning!) Brush crescent rolls with remaining honey butter, pop in oven for another 10-15 minutes, until crust is browned and cheese melted.
Cool ten minutes and slice into 6-8 servings. Enjoy!
