Perfect for hurry up meals and easy preparation. KIDS LOVE IT! It's great for Bunco too.

Monte Cristo sandwiches are typically fried and I liked how this one is baked. The crescent dough is a great shortcut too. This recipe works great if you're serving a large crowd. It can easily be doubled and comes together in no time. This was REALLY good! The Test Kitchen
