"Set aside the bread and serve this ham and cheese melt on puff pastry instead. Sweet and savory never tasted so good...especially when topped with a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar."

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut into 4 (6-inch) squares. Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg mixture.
  3. With a corner of 1 pastry facing you, place 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese on the bottom half of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastries. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with the maple syrup.

Footnotes

  • Easy Substitution: For a savory twist, serve with Dijon-style mustard instead of the maple syrup.

The substitution of puff pastryfor bread in these Monte Crito's is outstanding! The puff pastry is buttery and rich. I have always heard of Monte Cristo sandwiches made with raspberry jam instea...

Made it for my son as a college graduation treat... he loved it! I couldn't find the Puff pastry sheets so instead I used a pie crust.. it was delish! My husband had some too and they both said ...

This was okay. Because you have to seal the crusts for the pastry sheets, you get a lot of 'bread' and all the ham and cheese together in just one spot. My family liked it, but we aren't rushing...
