Low Carb Monte Cristo Recipe

If you have ever had a warm, crisp, Monte Cristo sandwich with melting swiss cheese and sweet ham all nestled in on a french toast bed, you will know the flavor I was trying to recreate. Sweet, savory and oh-so-satisfying. Recipe by Whey Too Sweet.

With some egg whites, Devotion Nutrition's Angel Food Cake Protein Powder and ground flax meal, I was able to capture a bit of that sweet, french toast flavor. Add two slices of sliced, smoked turkey breast and a slice of swiss cheese and you get that satiating sweet, salty flavor that busts your weekend breakfast or brunch cravings!


Method: In large frypan, medium heat add half of your batter (combine your ingredients) and swirl until evenly distributed.

Cook one side and then flip when edges curl away from pan. I use my fingers to flip for best results. 

Add ham or turkey and swiss cheese.

Fold over and let heat melt cheese and warm turkey or ham. Serve warm.

    Fabulous idea! Thank you for this!!!! I would like to add to anyone reading recipe, use Applegate products no fillers, nitrates, sulfates – only meat products I will buy! :)

    I just made the Monte Cristo from Whey Too Sweet’s recipe, but I was prepping and realized I had just used the majority of my egg whites in another recipe so I used 1/2 cup egg whites and a 1/4 cup water. I also thought I had flax meal, but I realized I didn’t label my container and it was almond meal. Oh well! It all worked out and tastes great. The ONLY problem is that I can’t eat the whole serving so I have leftovers. Thanks for the great recipes and keep them coming!

    Thanks for sharing Allison. Looks like we found an alternate Monte Cristo recipe. Way to improvise and adapt! And leftovers are never a bad thing..
