Monte Cristo Sandwich ( Low Fat Recipes )

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
  • 1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 oz low-fat Swiss cheese
  • 2 slices of reduced-calorie white bread
  • 1 tsp reduced-calorie margarine
  • 1 slice of Canadian-style bacon

In a shallow bowl combine egg, milk, parmesan cheese, and pepper. Set aside. Place Canadian bacon and swiss cheese on one slice of bread. Top with the remaining slice of bread. Dip the sandwich into the egg mixture, turning several times until as much liquid as possible has been absorbed. In small nonstick skillet heat margarine until bubbly and hot; add a sandwich, pouring any remaining egg mixture over the bread. Cook over low heat turning once, until brown and crisp on both sides.
