Monte Cristo sandwiches are traditionally made with white bread filled with ham, turkey and cheese, dipped in egg, fried and served with sour cream and jam. Ours is a much healthier version using leftover or canned salmon.




2 slices whole grain bread

4 ounces cooked or canned salmon

2 tablespoons salsa

1 egg




1. Flatten the bread slices as much as you can with a rolling pin or heavy can.


2. Mash the salmon and salsa together in a bowl. If the salmon is cold, heat the mixture in the microwave for 1 minute to take off the chill.


3. Make a sandwich of the bread with the salmon mixture in the middle.


4. Beat the egg in a bowl and pour into a saucer. Dip the sandwich in the egg so that both sides are coated.


5. Fry the sandwich on a non-stick pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, turning half way to brown both sides.


6. Serve with additional salsa if you like.
