Teresa's StoryI LOVE Monte Cristo sandwiches! This is perfect for those Sunday brunches or when guests are staying at your house. You can make it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. Oh and the crunchy top is SO yummy!
sandwich bread, crusts removed (i used wheat)
2 1/2 c
crushed corn flakes (roughly 6 oz. uncrushed)
melted butter or margarine (butter tastes better)

Oh I'm going to have to try this when my college-age nephew comes to visit this summer! He's 6'3" and although built like a swimmer, he can put away food. This looks like the perfect breakfast for him.
