National Monte Cristo Day – September 17

NATIONAL MONTE CRISTO DAY

National Monte Cristo Day is celebrated annually on September 17. This is a day to indulge and enjoy an excellent sandwich.

A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich. It is a variation of a French sandwich called a croque-monsieur. The Monte Cristo is also sometimes called French Sandwich, Toasted Ham Sandwich, and French Toasted Cheese Sandwich.

The Monte Cristo is typically a savory sandwich rather than sweet.  It is usually dipped in egg batter and either pan fried or deep fried. Variations may include sliced turkey and different types of cheese. It can be served grilled or open-faced and heated under a grill or broiler. It can also be sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with jam or preserves.

Bennigan’s is renowned across the globe for its World Famous Monte Cristo. Others have tried to imitate it, but no restaurant has ever perfected the Monte Cristo like Bennigan’s.
