Classic Brown Derby Monte Cristo Sandwich (1959)

"Take three slices of white bread. Butter the first, and cover with lean baked ham and chicken. Butter the middle slice on both sides, place on meat, and cover with thinly sliced Swiss cheese. Butter the third slice and place, butter side down, over Swiss cheese.

"Trim crusts and cut sandwich in two. Secure with toothpicks. Dip in light egg batter, and fry in butter on all sides until golden brown. Remove toothpicks and serve with strawberry jelly, currant jam, or cranberry sauce."

(Origin - "The Brown Derby Cookbook - 50th Anniversary Edition, 1926 - 1976."  Foreward by Walter Scharfe, President of Brown Derby International Ltd; Hollywood, California.)
