Traditionally, a monte cristo sandwich is made with ham or turkey. Well, mine is a little different in that it features ground beef, but I have added a slice of ham to the sandwich. The principal is the same in that the entire sandwich is dipped in an egg mixture and fried like French toast.  You could also use a Panini press for a flatter sandwich. This recipe could to adapted to any sandwich, but I chose to use the Big Mac and the Quarter Pounder with Cheese. I wanted to experiment with the two types of sandwiches–one with all the toppings and the other without.
