We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Count Montrose Cristo Sandwich. The sandwich name is a fun twist on the Monte Cristo sandwich with name of the city inserted instead. This decadent sandwich is starts with smoked turkey and then layered with a sweet honey-ham. We then double up the cheese with a slice of cheddar and a slice of Swiss. Finally we layer the meats and the cheese together between a Hawaiian style egg bread and dipped in an egg batter and then it is promptly fried until crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. You end up with harmony between the semi-sweet and savory treat that just seems to work. For the extra kick, we have side of cran-strawberry jam. It is almost like a sweet and savory french toast.
Found at Black Cow Cafe in Montrose, California.
