Monte Cristo Sandwich Recipee

The Monte Cristo Sandwich is the greatest version of a ham and cheese sandwich you have ever encountered. This sandwich is not just an amazing way to use leftovers, but is truly worth cooking the turkey and ham just for this recipe.

Monte Cristo sandwiches are an interesting pairing between sweet and savory. For this recipe I used a sweet glazed ham, Sweet bread sliders and deviated from the traditional French toast coating and instead dipped in a simple pancake batter before deep frying.

Traditionally, Monte Cristo sandwiches are served dusted in powdered sugar and dipped in raspberry jelly. It sounds weird-but you have to try it.

Check out the recipe below


  • 12 Sweet Bread Rolls
  • 1 pound smoked Ham slices (Recipe HERE)
  • 1 pound smoked Turkey slices (Recipe HERE)
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 4 or 5 sprigs flat leaf parsley
  • 2 t Minced garlic
  • 8 oz Mozzarella, sliced
  • 8 oz Provolone, sliced
  • 32 oz box of pancake mix, made as directed
  • 12 oz Raspberry Jam
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Oil for deep frying


1. Prepare by slicing ham and turkey in 1/4 inch thick slices.
2. Preheat smoker to 350F, place on a piece of your favorite fruit wood.
3. Slice sweet rolls in half, leaving two large flat sections of bread. Mix butter, garlic and parsley together, before brushing down the both the inside and outside of the bread.
4. Layer Mozzarella, ham, turkey and provolone onto the bottom half of the bread, before placing the upper half on top. Place onto a foil tray or large sheet of aluminium foil and place on the cooker.
5. Cook the sandwich for 20-30 minutes, allowing the bread to toast, the cheese to melt and the sandwich to take on some smoke flavor.
6. Once sandwich is ready, remove from the heat and allow the sandwich to rest for ten minutes or so before slicing each section into individual sliders.
7. Make up the pancake batter as per the directions on the box and prepare oil for deep frying at 350F.
8. Deep fry each coated slider until crispy and golden. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar.
9. Serve these crispy coated sandwiches with raspberry jam for dipping and enjoy.

Smoked Turkey and Leek Pie

If you aren't overly familiar with leeks, they are kind of like a combination between onions and cabbage. It's sweet like fried cabbage, but has a very subtle oniony flavor. This dish pairs the leek with poultry for a subtle umami flavor and bacon for that hit of salty, fattiness that makes it pop. Wrap that all up in crispy pastry-You are in business!


Smoked Chicken halves with Alabama White Sauce


  • 2 Whole Chickens
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Distilled white vinegar
  • 1 t Lemon juice
  • 1 t Prepared horseradish
  • 1 T Black pepper
  • 1 t white sugar
  • 1/2 t Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper


  • To start, begin by splitting your chickens in half. Remove the backbone of both chickens, as if you were spatchcocking, Then use your kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut down the breast bone, separating both sides.
  • Preheat your smoker to 300F and add your favorite fruit wood. I always like cherry wood for poultry as it is nice and sweet and gives a great color.
  • Lightly season both the skin side and meat side of your chicken halves, before placing meat side down on your smoker. Smoke for approximately one hour
  • After smoking for the first hour, lightly mop both sides of your chicken with olive oil, before flipping skin side down. Liberally season the meat side of the chickens with cracked black pepper.
  • Continue to smoke for about another hour until the chicken hits about 180F between the thigh and the chicken leg. Test the doneness of the chicken by gently twisting the bone of the drumstick. If it twists easily, the meat is ready to serve.
  • While the chicken cooks, prepare your Alabama White Sauce. In a large bowl add all ingredients and whisk together until well incorporated.
  • Once the chicken is ready, remove from the heat and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes. Dip the chicken into the Alabama White until it is sauced on all sides before carving into pieces.
  • Serve the chicken with extra sauce on the side for dipping.
