    A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich, very popular among Canadians and Americans. In the 1930s–1960s, American cookbooks had recipes for this sandwich under such names as “French Sandwich”, “Toasted Ham Sandwich”, and “French Toasted Cheese Sandwich”. Swiss cheese is essentially the key element in this and has to be used. The Monte Cristo is also a very famous play that is for the most part worth checking out. Much like this sandwich here which has the same emotional and savory sensations as you’d expect from the play.
