Making Disneyland's Monte Cristo At Home

Hello everyone!
This Friday is Disneyland's 65th birthday!
Unfortunately, we can't be there to celebrate...
And since we have no idea when Disneyland will reopen to the public, Erik and I decided to recreate one of my favorite Dinsey eats at home.

You will need:
1 Egg
1 and 3/4 Cups + 2 Tablespoons of Water
1 and 3/4 Cups of Flour
1/4 A Teaspoon of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
8 Slices of Egg Bread Sliced 1/2 An Inch Thick, We Used Brioche
8 Thin Slices of Ham
8 Thin Slices of Turkey
8 Thin Slices of Swiss Cheese 
3 Cups of Oil, For Frying
Powdered Sugar
Blackberry Preserves

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg and water together.
Add the flour, salt, and baking powder and whisk together thoroughly for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.
On one slice of bread, arrange 2 slices of ham, turkey, and cheese covering the bread evenly.

Place another slice of bread on top and slice each sandwich in half diagonally.
Heat oil to 375o in a 10-inch pan.

Dip half of the sandwich into the batter, allowing any excess batter to run off.

Carefully place into the oil.

Repeat with the other sandwich half.
Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Remove to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil. 
Repeat with the remaining sandwiches one at a time.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve with blackberry preserves on the side.

Erik and I decided to make it a Disney feast and had ours with our homemade parmesan fries or Pommes Frites and a copycat Disneyland Mint Julep just how we enjoy it at Cafe Orleans.

It turned out SO good!
The outside had the perfect fried crunch and the inside was nice and ooey-gooey from the cheese. 
It definitely helped with my Disney food cravings.
The only thing missing was Disneyland.
Good thing we have a few recipes to old us over until the park reopens.
What is your favorite Disney treat?

All my love,
