Better then a traditional Monte Cristo in that there is a ton less fat and calories. Also like that it is easier and much less messy then a traditional Monte Cristo to make. Thanks for sharing this update version of an old favorite.

I apparently put too much dough on the bottom and barely had enough for the top - which didn't turn out too badly. I liked this recipe. We don't eat ham, so I substituted peppered turkey for the ham. Made for ZWT4 - Chic Chefs. Thanks for the recipe!

This was pretty good. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the sort of doughiness using the Bisquick instead of using bread and frying it like a traditional Monte Cristo. This version is healthier though. Some people might question putting powdered sugar on ham/turkey and cheese, but the powdered sugar makes it really special! Thanks for posting!
