The Happiest Sandwich On Earth

I remember years {and years} ago my Mom ordered a Monte Cristo sandwich at The Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland.

At the time I had no idea what it was, but once I took a bite, I knew it was something special. Like a mash up of french toast and ham & cheese. With powdered sugar. And maple syrup.

Julie over at Joy’s Hope introduced an updated, much healthier version of this ‘wich and I immediately knew it was on our Saturday lunch menu.

All you need is a tube of crescent rolls, some ham or turkey {or both} and queso of choice. I used honey ham and swiss. I finished them off with a light dusting of powdered sugar and seedless blackberry jam.

{Just follow Julie’s easy tutorial to put these sammies together}

I served it with some mini banana & blueberry skewers.

These were fantastic and I could close my eyes and imagine sitting {outside} at the Blue Bayou as park goers climb on the Pirates Of The Caribbean boat ride.

This may very well be the {happiest lunch on earth}.

  1. Okay – I will admit, when I was reading this post I was SO skeptical because NO ONE can make a better Monte Cristo sandwich than the Blue Bayou at Disneyland (I loved reading your memories about this!); however, this sounds like a pretty tasty twist on Disney’s classic (and yes, healthier too!). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh my! You have really brought back memories, Aims! I loved, loved, loved going to this restaurant and would love, love, love to go again with you, Jay, Holden and Elliott for a re-taste!
