Waffle Monte Cristos- Taste of Home Tuesday

I'm still working to get my family back to the table, and Mother Nature decided to help me out in the form of a snow day.   Who says a family meal has to be dinner, why not breakfast or brunch instead?  We were all starving after getting ourselves dug out of the storm, so I put together these Waffle Monte Cristos.  

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.

  1. What a great lunch idea. We always have frozen waffles in the freezer.

  2. My family enjoys Monte Cristos. I have to try them with waffles!

    1. It seemed like such a weird combination to me when I first tried them, but it really works!
