Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches Recipe @pinch

Monte Cristo sandwiches are typically fried and we love how this one is baked. It's filled with layers of turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese. Raspberry jam drizzled over top is a must. It adds the sweet and savory flavor contrast to the sandwich. Dijon mustard gives it just a little zing. Using crescent dough is an easy shortcut and creates a crust flaky. A great recipe if you're serving a crowd because it can easily be doubled. Perfect for hurry up meals and easy preparation. KIDS LOVE IT! It's great for Bunco too.
