Copycat Disneyland's Monte Cristo Sandwiches! Yummy swiss cheese, turkey, ham on white bread, fried & topped with powdered sugar!

It wasn’t too long ago that I blogged about our trip to Disneyland in November. The kids continue to ask if we can go back each and every day, and we often talk about the fun we had from this last trip. Although, we talk a lot about the rides and characters the kids got to meet, the hubby and I also like to talk about all the yummy food found there. I already shared our Mock Disneyland Broccoli Cheese Soup, and today I’m sharing with you a recipe for our ALL-TIME favorite food from Disneyland – their Monte Cristo Sandwiches.

If you have had one of these mouth-watering sandwiches from there, you’ll know why we love it so much. It’s pretty much a sweet and salty deep fried sandwich of goodness!

Now, I must warn… it’s hard to eat more than 1 or 2 of these sandwiches because they are deep-fried, but they are so extremely good!!

MY OTHER RECIPES

And what’s better than anything is that I found the BEST and EASIEST recipe for these guys, so we have them quite a bit and it always reminds us of our past trips to Disneyland. 🙂

{The sandwiches before they are dipped in batter…. just bread, ham, turkey and Swiss. These can also be cut in quarters and can be served as appetizers.}

Now that I am older my favorite part of disneyland is all of the different food 🙂 I haven’t had an annual pass in a few years.. not I am thinking I should change that! The monte cristo sandwich is a must when at disneyland and this sandwich just looks perfect!

I love Monte Crisco Sandwhiches. They are so rich and yummy!! I’ve never made it myself, but I think I just might have to make some this week 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!!

Just a little addition……the first time I had a Monte Cristo was at a now defunct chain restaurant and they served it with a little cup of seedless raspberry preserves for you to dunk the sandwich! Lunch and dessert in one!

I have been wanting to try making these for years! I have to ask though, where at Disneyland do they sell them? I’ve never seent them there!

    Lil' Luna

    They sell them at two places in New Orleans Square by Pirates…. one restaurant is the one inside Pirates called The Blue Bayou, and the other is the cafe right across the way… can’t think of the name at the moment. :/ They are so good!!

Lindsay

I grew up eating these at my grandma’s house and they really are so delicious! She doesn’t fry them in oil though, just cooks them in a pan or on a griddle the way you would do French toast. Yum!

My fiancé and I went to Disneyland in December after reading your post it was so much fun, we ordered the Monte Cristo Sandwich it was so good! I have been wanting to make it ever since! Thanks for the recipe!

Alex

Thank you….. This is AMAZING. My wife loved it!!

Jocelyn @ Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows

Mmmm, these look AMAZING! I have to try this.

Nat D.

Are you kidding me?! We should not be able to make these at home! This is like one of my top 10 foods of all time. When we go to Disneyland this sandwich is a must. I’ve never met anyone else who’s loved it as much though. Brava!

Spencer

I am excited to try these. I tried making these once and they had a hard time staying together together while frying. If you are ever in the Cleveland, Ohio area the best one of these sandwiches I have had is at The Melt. UNBELIEVABLE!

Ruth Santiago

I loved the Monte Cristo Sandwiches at Disneyland, It was a must have for me. I am so glad to have come upon your recipe, Now I must try it.

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know if you do try it out. I think you’ll love it!

Ant

Your recipe is awesome 🙂 but just wanted to tell you and others that Disney happily shares its recipes. I’m not sure if they do it online but I know while dining in the Magic Kingdom a few years ago I asked for a recipe of what I was eating and within two minutes was handed a printout of recipes of the entire meal!
