    Mimi's has some decent meals that's for sure. The Blueberry Muffins are huge. Good stuff. Mimi's is next to the Howard Johnson on Harbor Blvd. In case you want to know HM.

    Re: In search of the infamous Monte Cristo!

    Post the recipe, I'm just interested in what it is. Other than a ham sandwich, deep fried and dipped in powdered sugar. Isn't that about right?

    You add fat and sugar. Like a package out of the Monsters Inc: STTR vending machines.

    I was thrilled to see the recipe in the mag, but the results of our attempt just didn't do it for us. Missing something. Maybe the Disney magic???

    Thanks for the tip, though!


    And thanks for the Mimi's tip as well. We have a place in our home town that sells them too, but they just aren't the same as what we get at the BB.

    And that is probably a good thing...

    We had the opposite experience. We loved them. My friends and I have little parties all the time with them. They are different tasting, but they are still pretty darn good.

    More than one person can eat......I didn't find them great...just OK, but only one person's opinion!

    Re: In search of the infamous Monte Cristo!

    I have an old Mickey cookbook that I got from WDW years ago, and it has the most requested recipes from the parks. Ok this is very lengthy.

    Monte Cristo sanwhich is served with a fruit compote (a mixture of fresh and canned fruit) and current jelly sauce. First prepare these two, then make the batter. While it is chilling, put together the sandwhiches. When the sanwhiches are fried, the complete service is ready.

    CURRANT JELLY SAUCE
    2/3 cup currant jelly
    1 TBS half and half
    1 TBS water

    Combine jelly, water and half and half in the blender and mix until smooth. Makes about 3/4 cup.

    FRUIT COMPOTE
    Combine your favorite fresh and canned fruits and chill well. Plan 1/2 cup per person.

    BATTER
    2/3 cup water
    1 small egg
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp white pepper
    1/8 tsp yellow food color
    2/3 cup flour
    1-3/4 baking powder

    Place water, egg, salt, pepper and food color in a bowl and using an electric mixer, mix well at low speed. Add flour and baking powder and mix until batter is smooth, Chill. Makes enough for 4 sandwhiches.

    SANDWHICHES

    8 slices white bread
    4 slices turkey roll (1 oz each)
    4 slices swiss cheese (1 oz)
    4 slices ham (1 oz)

    Make 4 sandwhiches, putting cheese between ham and turkey. Cut into 4ths and put a toothpick through each quarter.

    FINAL PREP

    Soybean or veggie oil to fry
    Powdered sugar
    Fruit compote
    Jelly currant

    Heat about 6 inches of oil to 340 in a fryer. Dip sandwhices in batter to cover all surfaces. Deep fry sandwhices until golden brown, turning as needed. Remove from oil, take out the toothpicks, sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Serve with the fruit and currant.

    I make the Monte Cristos on occasion. The batter never tastes, nor comes out as fluffy or as heavy as Disneyland's, but its not bad. The key is that you get the right kind of meat. You have to use thick-sliced deli meats, not the thin stuff because it gets lost in the batter and bread. Also, don't be cheap on the cheese - get some good swiss and make sure you put enough - no need to worry about fat and calories with the amount of cheese - its not like a deep fried sandwich is ever heathly anyways. Be generous!

    As for the Monte Cristos at Mimis - I've never had them... I might have to try them out one day. But just to let you all know - never ever get a Monte at Carrow's Kitchen/Carrow's. It's bad news.

    Do they come quarted? I have never had one myself, but I would think it would be easier to fry them if they weren't cut into 4ths. I dunno. Hope you all enjoy.

    They come in halves at Disneyland. For some reason the recipie calls for you to quarter them. I believe this is an official Disney recipie too, from the old Disney Magazine, so its kind of weird..

    Re: In search of the infamous Monte Cristo!

    Has anyone tried calling guest services and asking if the Monte is available anywhere else for the time being?

    Re: In search of the infamous Monte Cristo!

    Hmm after hearing the recipe I'm intrigued enough to try one... At Disneyland, probably not at home. I'd think it'd be a good idea to try one before trying to MAKE one. Especially if it turns out I don't like it... LOL.
