Sam Choy's Kitchen recipe: Monte Cristo


3 eggs
1 cup milk 
A pinch of cinnamon

3 tablespoon butter or oil
3 slices of bread or sweetbread
Ham   (sliced thin)
Turkey   (sliced thin)
Swiss cheese (sliced thin)
Pineapple (sliced thin)

Combine batter ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Add butter or oil in a heated skillet or griddle.  On a work surface, lay out 3 slices of bread and spread with mayonnaise.  Layer each slice of bread with ham, turkey swiss cheese and a slice of the pineapple.  Cut the crust off the bread.  Place tooth picks through the sandwich to help hold the layers in place.  Dip the sandwich in the batter to coat evenly.  Place the battered sandwich in the butter or oil on medium heat.  Brown on all sides, adding more butter when necessary.  Cut in half or quarters, remove the toothpicks before serving.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
