Monte Cristo Turkey Breakfast Sandwich
The Monte Christo is the undisputed king of sweet/savory breakfast sandwiches. This take on the classic French recipe makes for a delightful morning with a sweet cranberry cream cheese spread.

⅓ cup jellied cranberry sauce
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon cream cheese
½ cup skim milk
½ cup liquid eggs
¼ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
8 slices crusty bread
1 cup liquid eggs, scrambled
8 slices JENNIE-O® Turkey Bacon, cooked according to package directions
8 slices JENNIE-O® sliced All Natural Oven Browned Turkey Breast, from the service deli
powdered sugar, if desired

1) To make cranberry spread, in small bowl, combine cranberry sauce, orange juice and cream cheese; set aside.
2) To make batter, in medium bowl, whisk together milk, ½ cup liquid eggs, water and vanilla.
3) In medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, sugar and baking powder. Make well in center. Add milk mixture; mix to smooth batter.
4) To make sandwiches, heat flat griddle. Dip each bread slice in batter. Cook on griddle 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden.
5) Spread half the bread slices with cranberry mixture. Top with scrambled eggs, bacon and turkey. Top with remaining battered bread slices. Cook in heated Panini press or two-sided grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Cut sandwich in half. Secure with toothpicks. Arrange on plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
