Monte Cristo Sandwich

Photo from cdkkitchen
Another easy peasy mid-week meal.  I've always been nervous about pairing jam with monte cristo's--but honestly it made it taste better.  Even my super picky youngins ate these! (By the way, this picture is not what they actually look like since they are made with crescent rolls--I couldn't find another one!)

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Ingredients to serve four:
Ultra thin sliced deli meat of your choice
Cheese or combination of cheeses of your choice.  Sliced or shredded.  Same diff.
Pillsbury Crescent rolls. One can makes four sandwiches.  Plan accordingly.
Jam.  We are boysenberry fans here, but raspberry or strawberry would work fine too.  But boysenberry is better.
Powdered sugar.
 Line your baking sheet with foil.
Spray it with Pam.
These guys tend to stick, or the cheese melts out the sides.  Who wants to scrape melted cheese?
Unroll the crescent rolls, making sure to keep them in rectangles.  See how two triangles make a rectangle? 
With your finger, lightly press together the seams where the triangles meet.
 Sprinkle or tear the cheese so it fits on each rectangle.
Layer on a few pieces of meat.
Fold over the neat little pile of cheese and meat.
Seal edges by pressing down with your fingers.
 Bake until golden brown at 375º for 15-18 minutes.
(Aren't you glad you used foil?)
Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and a heaping spoonful of jam.
