Ohhh Brian... must you make me drool so eary in the AM. ( LOL! )

A Monte Cristo sandwich consists of ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese between two slices of bread, soaked in an egg-based batter and grilled or deep-fried.

The sandwich is often served with fresh fruit or with maple syrup on the side. It is sometimes served with fruit preserves, powdered sugar, or sweet mustard sauce.

I had one of these at THE GLOBE in Orlando Fla. It came with strawberry compote...

Yum.. Yum...!! Wipe's drool...

You bet'cha puppy! Just want to tell you tho that Bennigan's is a chain restaurant but their food is pretty good. And I've sampled the Monte before and it is tasty! Not something that I myself would normally eat.

First one on the list... ;)

Nothing like a deep fried sandwich to make your arteries say "clean me!" What the hell, order some onion rings as a side.

Almost makes Lady & Sons sound like Nutrasystems.

I think you really will need a walking tour after one of those belly bombs.

All around the Lady and Sons

The tourists chased the butter.

The tourists thought " 'twas all in fun!"

POP goes the carotid!
