Monte Cristo Sandwiches are my new go to sandwich!  They are served warm, so the cheese is perfectly melted, the bread is toasted, and the meat just seems to be extra tender and juicy.  It’s not quite a panini, because you aren’t pressing the sandwich or grilling it, but instead you are baking it.  I like to use French Toast as the bread as well.  It adds a little extra something to each bite!

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the … Continue reading

It’s the time of year for all the pumpkin flavored lattes, pancakes, cookies, pasta, etc. starts popping up.  If you can eat it, I’m sure someone has tried adding pumpkin flavoring to it!  It’s a craze that I’m more than happy to participate in 🙂 But, another fall favorite I don’t think gets enough credit is apple cider. I thought it would be fun to do a taste test of pumpkin vs apple cider with breakfast foods to see which the fan favorite is.  I made the same two items with both flavors. Apple Cider French Toast Apple Cider Waffles Pumpkin French Toast Pumpkin Waffles   All recipes are made the traditional way, except you either add pumpkin or apple cider, or substitute it for another ingredient.  I chose to make french toast sticks and sliced the bread into 3 pieces, but you can leave the bread whole if you prefer.  I also used a … Continue reading
