This easy monte cristo is made with Van's gluten free waffles. It's a savory simple recipe.
Toast the waffles. Get them crispy so they do not get soggy when soaking in the egg mixture.
In a shallow bowl or pie dish add the eggs, coconut milk, paprika, sea salt and pepper. Whisk well.
Take 2 waffles and spread mayo and each one, add the ham and cheese. Create a sandwich with 2 waffles acting as the bread and the ham and cheese inside.
Add the waffle sandwich to the egg mixture and allow it soak up about 15-30 seconds, then flip and repeat. While this is happening add 1 tbsp. of butter to an 8 inch frying pan and allow it to melt.
Add the waffle sandwich that is coated in the egg mixture to the hot butter. Allow to cook about 2 minutes, or until there is a nice golden brown crispy color outside and then flip and repeat.
Continue this for all 3 monte cristos. Once cooked place them on a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve warm, with or without powdered sugar sprinkled on top.
