I used apple jelly instead of the apricot preserves, and provolone instead of the Havarti. I've had Monte Cristos before, but the guys hadn't, and they were a little hesitant about the combination.
We enjoyed them so much, I made them again the following morning. This is the second family favorite from the Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook, and I'm sure there will be more. Thank you to Kelly R for sharing your recipe!
It's Taste of Home Tuesday! Be sure to go and see what my fellow Volunteer Field Editors are making this week through the links at the bottom of this post.
