Felix lingonberry jam monte cristo sandwich.

Cooking time
15 minutes


Ingredient list

  • 4 slices bread
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 8 thin slices ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • A pinch pepper and salt
  • A pinch nutmeg
  • Powdered sugar (for sprinkling)
  • 1/4 cup Felix Lingonberries

Recipe instructions

Whisk eggs until foamy.

Add milk and mix well.

Lightly spread butter on inside of bread slices.

Melt remaining butter in large skillet.

Melt Felix lingonberry jam (I used the microwave for about 20 seconds, but you can use stove, too)

Place jam in small bowl.

Place 4 pieces of ham and 2 pieces of cheese on slices of buttered bread.

Place sandwiches in egg mixture, soaking just a little of the mixture into the bread. Don't leave too long or you won't have enough for second sandwich!

Place sandwiches in skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook on each side, trying not to disturb until browned.

Remove from pain and place on paper towel to blot excess butter.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve Felix lingonberry jam on the side for dipping or drizzling.
