Easy Monte Cristos

Today, is yet another great food holiday. Today celebrate the Monte Cristo. Wow!! What a fancy name, what exactly is it. Well it is a fried ham and cheese sandwich. Very popular between the 1930s and 1960s and often found in cookbooks during that time as well. It can also be found under names such as french sandwich, toasted ham sandwich, and french toasted cheese sandwich. 

1 full package of 24 count rolls - Kings Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are our favorite
1 1/2 lb black forest ham  - thinly sliced
24 slices of baby Swiss cheese 

Sweet Glaze 
1/4 C pineapple juice
1 stick butter
1 tsp garlic salt 
1/4 tsp pepper 
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 T dijon mustard 
3 T brown sugar 
1 tsp corn starch

With a long bread knife, slice rolls open - if you are using Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, keep all rolls in tact and slice right through the center of the rolls. Once baked you can cut the individual rolls for serving. 
Make glaze on stove top. Bring to a slight boil & let cool slightly. With a pastry brush, brush the glaze on to the open face side of the rolls. Reserve a little glaze for the top of rolls.
Layer on the open face side of rolls - meat, cheese, meat and cheese and place the other half of rolls on top.
Brush a light coating of glaze on top of rolls. Cover snugly with foil. Bake 320 (convection oven) 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven and serve hot. 
Serve with raspberry jam, pineapple tidbits or ranch dressing.

Yum, YUM, YUM!!
