Monte Cristo Sandwiches - easy recipe using leftover Easter ham! These sandwiches are the perfect combo of sweet and salty! Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Happy almost Friday!

Let’s continue our Easter countdown!

I really love Easter. I never list it when talking about my fave holidays (because people always ask what my favorite holidays are…) but every year I go Easter crazy.

I definitely think it has the best candy, the cutest decorations, and, of course, the best food.

I love a big Easter dinner with ham and mashed potatoes and… okay, I really just care about the ham and mashed potatoes.

Anyway.

 I thought I would share a fun way to change up your leftover ham sandwich game today!

Apple Cider Bourbon Glazed Ham

I used the most epic ham ever for these sandwiches. Oh, you thought all hams were created equal?

No.

You are wrong.

CUREMASTER RESERVE™ is a limited edition, small-batch line of hams that are only available online and are delivered right to your door. There are only 2,400 of them and all are hand-crafted and hardwood smoked to perfection.

When you order your CUREMASTER RESERVE™ ham, first you choose which ham you want.

I went with Vermont Maple because I love Vermont and I love maple but the 2016 CUREMASTER RESERVE™ ham lineup also includes Clover Honey, Campfire Sugar Rubbed, Double Smoked and Brown Sugar.

Then once you’ve got your ham picked out, you pick a glaze.

I, of course, went with the Apple Cider Bourbon Glaze! The other choices are Pineapple Ginger, Crunchy Brown Sugar, Honey Dijon,  Cranberry Chipotle, and Brown Sugar Sriracha.

And then it’s delivered right to your door in the cutest packaging!

I wish you could’ve smelled this ham when I pulled it out of the oven.

Incredible doesn’t even begin to describe it.

I could have stood at the counter and eaten the entire thing, dipping each piece into the little bowl of glaze I’d saved.

If you order a CUREMASTER RESERVE™ Ham, I wouldn’t anticipate having much ham leftover but if you do, I’d highly recommend making Monte Cristo Sandwiches.

Have you ever had one?

I hadn’t until I made these.

So it’s just a ham and swiss sandwich with a bit of mustard and then it’s coated in eggs and milk like French toast and fried to perfection. And then you top it with powdered sugar and serve with strawberry jam.

Perfect for breakfast, lunches, or dinner!
