The wife like American cheese and sliced tomato cooked in the sandwich. I like mild cheddar, mozzarella, tomato and sliced red onion....all grilled together.

As was said, there's no wrong way if it's what pleases your palette, but there are many ways to experiment with.

Well I had my first Velveeta GC sandwich in years, not bad but honestly not as good as the Kraft DELI DELUXE mild cheddar BUT Velveeta has about 1/2 the calories if you're interested in that trade-off, cheaper too.

For the bread we like the whole grain white bread, thick and good toasted. :)

Oh yeah all GC doesn't have to be yellow, I like provolone, swiss and probably a whole lot more if I think about it, still right now I'm into the mild cheddar as my favorite....but sharp cheddar isn't bad either, how can you go wrong with any really. But it's got to have that golden brown bread buttered on all sides, preferably whole grain white. ;)

Oh this reminds me of another favorite Monte Cristo Sandwiches. A local restaurant does a great one the way I like it, no berry sauce dip or powdered sugar, basically a good ham & cheese sandwich deluxe. There are many recipes but here's a general one:

Directions:
1. To make the sandwiches: Lay the bread out on the work surface. Spread one side of each slice with the (Dijon) mustard. Spread half of the cheese on 4 slices of the bread. Cover with half of the turkey and season with salt and pepper to taste. Evenly spread the cranberry on the turkey on the sandwich. Top with the remaining turkey; season with salt and pepper to taste, and cover with the remaining cheese and bread. Press down slightly on each sandwich.

2. In a lipped plate or dish, whisk together the eggs and milk, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat 2 large skillets over medium-low heat, add a tablespoon of both butter and oil to each pan. Dip and coat each of the sandwiches in the egg mixture and lay in the pans. Cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the sandwiches to a baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Or from our restaurant -
Monte Cristo – roasted turkey, baked ham, fresh-baked bread, dipped and pan-grilled
$7 ½
Definitely from the South, definitely a reward for the hard-worker (oh it does have plenty of cheese too)

I like wheat bread and American, sharp cheddar, swiss, pepper jack. Really just about any cheese will do. My wife loves fresh tomatos on hers, I do ham with 1,000 island sometimes and any kind of pickle, on the side, works too.

Does anyone put spicy brown mustard on with the sharper cheeses? Very tasty!

I like a variety of mustards on hotdogs with melted cheese or onions, Heinz spicy brown, Grey Poupon, horseradish or French's yellow.

It's gotta be sourdough for me, wrapped around a slice of Tillamook sharp cheddar, grilled to a golden brown. Soup works great for a side, but it isn't really necessary.:)
At the Tillamook chese factory they put out cheese samples. Wow--I really chowed down.
Ditto Apletts and Cotletts in Cashmere, Washington..

Oooohhh... Aplets & Cotletts!!! A favorite of mine, and only available around here at Hadley's Orchards; well, okay, around here = 200 miles. Thanks for reminding me, since it's on the way to Mom's house, and I'll be passing by on Sunday morning.:D

Anybody else here like, tried or made a Monte Cristo Sandwich? I love the one at my local restaurant/pub with a good lager.

My wife keeps one of two of our fridge crisper drawers filled to the top with cheese. I love cheese but, for me, I have limited places where I choose to add it. Mysteriously, I help her unload groceries every Saturday, and there's always 2-3 bricks of some kind of cheese..I never see her eat any??
That was long winded to get to this but...I've never heard of Monte Cristo cheese. Mild? Sharp? Hows it eaten ( like in something, by itself, with fruit, small hard sausages ) I know she would like to be introduced to another type.

Monte Cristo is just the style of the sandwich, generally dipped in egg batter, some pressed and a lot of different variations from there.

So it's any cheese, not a brand?
Right, even my wife wasn't sure probably some swiss, maybe gruyere something white that melts easily to make one great melted cheese w/ham and/or turkey sandwich. Some use sandwich presses (or the bottom of a fry pan at home). Umm umm umm.

Just a few minutes ago, I had a grilled ham and swiss. Now I got a great name for it. :)

Did you use a cranberry spread, sprinkle powered sugar on it or make it so sweet that it's like eating French toast....me neither!
But dipping it in a batter and some pressing makes it a Monte Cristo and not just a ham & cheese.

The other day my wife bought some American cheese with pimentos mixed in it, made one terrific TC sandwich on a fresh white Italian bread cooked golden brown.....ummmmm.

Today we went to 5 Guys Burgers had a BLT w/American cheese and a grilled cheese sandwich with a large order of their great fries. We split the sandwiches and fries for lunch today, not bad!
