Recipe: Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches

The only thing better than a super easy recipe is a super easy recipe that is delicious... and the kids will eat it! This recipe was a real winner with all 5 of us which sadly, hardly ever happens.
Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches
1 package puff pastry (2 sheets)
16 pieces of thinly sliced deli ham
8 pieces of swiss cheese
one egg
optional: powdered sugar and your favorite jam, or if you like savory opt for a good quality mustard

Thaw puff pastry sheets for 40 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Cut each sheet of puff pastry into 4
On each square put one piece of swiss cheese and 2 slices of ham
Fold puff pastry into a triangle and seal edges with a fork
Scramble one egg and brush the tops of each puff pastry triangle with a fork
Bake 20 minutes or until golden

This is a great base recipe and you could easily switch out toppings and sauces, types of meat and cheese, etc. The sky is the limit!
