We were given 2 hands for a reason. Actually many reasons, like carrying twins, clapping when our husbands do the dishes, clapping when our husbands get both socks into the hamper..well, nevermind the last one, since that never happens…lol!
Anyhoo, all sports fans will agree that game watching is packed with intense high-fiving, tight remote gripping, beer/soda guzzling and LOTS of food eating! But you can only do those things if you have at least one hand free, so that means no 2-handed, double fisted sandwich wrestling during the game!
Feast your eyes on the crispiest, tastiest, meatiest, cheesiest, heartiest, one handed food wonder I’ve ever created. A pop-in-your-mouth Monte Cristo Sandwich!! That’s right!
It only takes one hand and one second to indulge in only The! Best! Sandwich! since the invention of sandwiches. All without the hassle of a ten finger sandwich hoist and sticky volume buttons on the remote..lol!
These snacks will make you the VIP at your house for sure!
What you’ll need for 32 magnificent mini Monte’s:
1 package of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits (8ct.)
1 lb of sliced cooked Ham
1lb of sliced cooked Turkey
1 lb if sliced Swiss Cheese
1 lb of sliced Cheddar Cheese
**The amounts of sliced meats & cheeses are approximate, structure the amounts to fit your tastes!
Raspberry Preserves (if you’re going “classic”..YUM!)
Oil for frying..I used Canola
Stack up all the meats and cheeses (one slice of each) and tightly roll up each stack. Slice the roll into approx. 1/2″ slices.
Roll out each Biscuit to flatten it, and cut each one into fourths. Fill each piece of dough with a slice of the Meat & Cheese roll. Gently enclose it inside the dough, sealing each ball tight…
Heat up (350 degrees) about 2″ of oil in a medium, heavy-bottomed pot. Fry them up in batches of 3-4 and drain them on some paper towel…
While they’re warm, sprinkle them with Powdered Sugar…
Tell them how pretty they are, before you attack them, it’s only right…lol!
Serve them to your hungry team with lots of sticky Raspberry Jam for dipping…
Hope they use some plates…
Make sure and grab some for YOU…
Dig in and savor these one-bite, one-hand Mini Monte’s! ~Enjoy!
