Thanksgiving Leftovers Monte Cristo SandwichI am always trying to think of new ways to use up leftovers from Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The first round of heating up leftovers is always exciting but it seems like there is more moaning and groaning from round three and on. This Monte Cristo sandwich something I started this year. All the leftovers are packed between a couple slices of bread, battered, fried and dusted with powdered sugar. It is so good, we are all looking forward to my Monte Christmas sandwich around the corner!
