Grilled cheeses are huge right now, with recipes for every type of grilled cheese floating around the internet. We’ve personally tried the caprese grilled cheese, the blackberry honey smash, the pizza grilled cheese, and more.

If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, though, these Monte Cristo style grilled cheeses taste just like home. Check them out and have a bite of comfort food tonight.


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • 2 – 3 oz of smoked deli ham, sliced
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 TBS half and half
  • 1/2 TBS butter
  • powdered sugar, for sprinkling

Spread mayonnaise and mustard on bread. Top bread with swiss cheese and ham.

Beat egg and half and half in a small bowl to combine.

Heat small skillet over medium heat, adding butter. Dip entire sandwich in egg to coat, then throw in skillet and cook until browned. Serve warm with powdered sugar (if you want).
