Teresa's notes for this recipe:
I 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!

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion salt, and dry mustard; pour over top of sandwiches in dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Let me know what you think Kellie! I've also substituted prepared Dijon mustard (about 2 tbl -eyeballing it) and that was tasty too! Hope you like it!

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.
