Corner Pub Grub: The Monti Grillo

What we have for today’s Corner Pub Grub is a different take on a traditional turkey Monte Cristo, which I call The Monti Grillo!

It’s inspired in part by culinary superstar and world-class sweetheart The Monti Carlo. The Food Network personality always has a kind word and fresh culinary perspective for her fans.

Now onto the sandwich!

I took bread and soaked it in egg, milk, and mango habanero hot sauce.  Also used was a few slices of honey turkey that I crisped in a bit of bacon fat. I seasoned everything and added bourbon barrel smoked pepper, aged Amish shredded cheddar. I added a schemer of sweet pepper cream cheese, minced peppadews from Peppadewusa and then pressed the sandwich in my ceramic enameled cast iron grill pan … and done!

Delicious and not very difficult to throw together
