Monte Cristo with fried eggs, goat cheese and jam (+ nifty cinnamon trick)

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Yesterday morning Balazs wrapped up a huge translation job and after pulling an all-nighter and being utterly swamped, we skipped breakfast and made Lara’s Monte Cristo sandwich with fried eggs, goat cheese, apricot jam and prosciutto for an early lunch. If you like eggs and goat cheese, you will love this sandwich.

Plus, Lara has this nifty trick to bread toasting. She dips the whole sandwich into an egg, milk and cinnamon mixture to caramelize the bread before serving it hot. Blimey, I never knew that goat cheese, eggs, jam and cinnamon can go together so well but oh, boy I am blown away. With every bite the sandwich felt fancier and yummier. What do you think? Would you try it? (Here is the full recipe). xo

P.S. Fancy more: How about this, that and maybe ever this one?
P.P.S: And a few more for a sweet tooth.

Goat's cheese is one of my favourite foods, but I've never tried it with eggs before. Sound like a perfect lunch for sunday :-)
