In preparations for my awesome Walt Disney World trip, I couldn’t help but look back at all the great times I’ve spent at it’s sister, Disneyland. The rides are exciting, the characters hilarious and fun, and the whole atmosphere makes it a truly magical vacation. The FOOD is another thing that I can’t help but get really hyped about and remember – like the famous Disneyland Monte Cristo Sandwich! This copycat version is much easier to make at home that you’d think, and maybe it’ll help tide over the cravings until the next big Disney vacation.

Now, don’t worry if you don’t have a deep fryer – I just used a pot and tongs. Yes, tongs are your best friend with this recipe if you want to avoid getting burned! Just use common sense and be careful, especially if pets or children are anywhere nearby. If you’ve never tried a Disneyland Monte Cristo before – it’s such an interesting blend of a typical sandwich, fried outside, then served with powdered sugar and jam. I know, sounds weird, right? Just trust me – and the countless other people who rave about it – that it’s a must-try recipe!
