This Monte Cristo Breakfast Bake makes a wonderful brunch or holiday breakfast. It is best made the night before, and bakes up flawlessly every time. It is flavorful and crunchy, like a meaty french toast. I am always begged for the recipe, and asked to make it all the time. It is very easy to throw together, and can easily be made in a deep dish disposable pan for ease of clean up. Don't forget to have some fruity syrup on hand! Enjoy!

How to Make Monte Cristo Breakfast Bake


  1. coat a 9x13 dish with cooking spray. ( I prefer a metal or disposable pan to glass)
  2. Slice french bread in to 1/4 inch slices approx 18-20 slices. enough for top and bottom of each sandwich on the dish.
  3. Mix mustard and cream cheese. Spread cheese thinly on one layer of french bread. ( filling only the bottom of the pan with one layer of bread and cream cheese)
  4. Place swiss cheese over bread layer. Follow with ham, then turkey. I like to used the shaved meat and pile loosely on top.
  5. Place remaining bread slices on top of casserole. Try to line up like small sandwiches to ease removal from the pan.
  6. Mix eggs, sugar, vanilla and milk. with egg beater. Pour over sandwiches and once they sit for a few minutes turn them over with a spatula to coat both sides of bread.
  7. Cover with foil and refrigerate at least 30 min or overnight for best results. Remove foil and dot with butter before baking.
  8. Bring to room temp before baking and bake at 400 for 30-40 mins.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. I like to serve this with Raspberry, Strawberry or Boisenberry syrup.
