I’ve been to Disneyland once…once. It was for my 26th birthday and we had three little kids in tow. I slightly wish that it was just me alone because I’d be able to soak in all the elements but the kids have always remembered the light-sabers and the ride I took Freddie on and laughed at him when he was crying. Another thing I remember is the Monte Cristo sandwich from Cafe Orleans. You’ll find it pretty close to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and after you’ve passed the famous Dole Whip station in Adventureland.Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories! For this series, I’ve partnered with other bloggers to show you our favorite Disneyland copycat recipes and I’m going to share with you Disney’s Meatless Monte Cristo Sandwich. The original has turkey, ham and swiss but I wanted to fancy it up a bit and do the meatless version with swiss, mozzarella and double cream brie cheese. I’m serving it alongside a store bought berry puree and of course I have to fry it and dust it with powdered sugar.

To start we’ll make the batter. Mix all the ingredients together well and let it rest while you assemble your sandwich. I used Trader Joe’s brioche loaf as the bread. You can grab all the cheeses there too. It I grabbed mine at my local Krogers.Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories! I removed the rind from the brie cheese and just sliced it up the best I could but since it’s almost like cream cheese, it’ll be a little rustic looking. I sliced up some fresh mozzarella and I grabbed some sliced Swiss cheese at the butchers counter.Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories! Slather each slice of brioche with Dijon Mustard and then on each slice of bread add a slice of Swiss cheese. Sandwich in the mozzarella and the brie and put both slices together. Now cut the sandwich triangle way in half and slather in that batter. Heat your oil to 350• and fry baby fry!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American, French
Keyword: disneyland copycat recipe, meatless monte cristo sandwich, monte cristo recipe
Servings: 1 sandwich
Ingredients
Sandwich
  • Brioche bread, sliced
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 slices double-cream Brie cheese
  • 2 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
Batter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 egg
Additional Ingredients
  • blackberry preserves
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 3 cups canola oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat your Canola oil to 350* in a frying pan.

  2. Spread the dijon mustard on the brioche bread, place a slice of swiss cheese on each slice of bread. Place the brie cheese and mozzarella on one side of the sandwich and sandwich the two slices together. Cut into a diagonal half.

  3. Place each half into the batter and coat well. Carefully place them into the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan onto paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Cut each half in half again and dust with powdered sugar. Serve along side black berry preserves.

I let it fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it was pretty golden. I flipped the sandwich away from me so I didn’t get splattered and let the other side cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. I let it drain on a paper towel and sliced each half in half again so I had 4 triangles of the sandwich. I served it alongside a blackberry jelly which was just store bought. You can go all out making your own but it’s just another step I didn’t want to do.
