16 Mock - Monte Cristo






My life long bestie, Kim, was telling me about a sale on turkey, ham and cheese at Publix...got me thinking about a FAVORITE recipe.  I found this recipe in the Pillsbury Bake-Off Cookbook many moons ago.... March 1994. Whoa...my youngest was only 3!

Obviously we have been making this at my house for a LONG TIME!!! So it MUST be Delicious!

Oh will  my girls be devastated when they read this post.... 

Crescent Cristo Sandwich Loaf

Pillsbury Bake-Off
March 1994
Lori Ann Rizzo
College Station, Texas


My version is slightly different then the one Lori submitted many years ago.  Here is how I make it!

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons honey together in the microwave


I usually melt the butter first, then add honey and reheat if necessary.



 Unwrap 2 (8 oz) cans Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls.



 Separate dough into 4 long rectangles. Press perforations to seal. Line baking sheet with parchment paper!



 Brush with honey/butter.



 Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown



ALLOW TO COOL FOR 15 MINUTES!

Assembly Time!

Top one rectangle with turkey and brush on Raspberry Preserves. (I used a pound because my husband likes a lot of meat!)

This time I used Smuckers but for next time... I am TOTALLY ordering some from my high school pal, Brenda, who owns The Berry Patch in Pennsylvania. Click here to visit The Berry Patch




Top with second rectangle. Then add sliced ham. (I used a pound because my husband likes meat!)
Top with more preserves.



Place third rectangle on top.  I added 1/2 pound of Muenster Cheese and a little more preserves!


Finally, place last rectangle on top.  Brush with 2 tablespoons of warmed honey.



 Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until crust is deep golden drown and loaf is hot throughout.

Enjoy by itself or as a side with soup on this cold winter day!
(even chilly here in the northern Sunshine State today!)


Oh, Brianne and Shelby, how I wish I could express mail some to you!!
