Monte Cristo Sandwiches: "The Monte Cristo rose to fame in 1966, when it appeared on the menu at Disney's Cajun restaurant, adjacent to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Whether someone coined the name before that, no one is sure, but similar sandwiches were being eaten. As far back as the 1930s." Versions vary widely, but this recipe from Sharron is the classic and best.
Look at this Monte Cristo sammitch. Just look at it. I would eat half of that and wrap the other half in a napkin and carry it around in my pocket all day, knowing that I was just seconds away from that deliciousness.
