Reviews for Waffle Monte Cristos
"I enjoyed this sandwich, and it was a HUGE hit with my husband. I used raspberry preserves, mozzarella cheese, and omitted the bacon (because I forgot to buy it). I added a sprinkling of Caribbean jerk seasoning to give the sandwiches some punch. Next time I will make sure to have apricot preserves on hand, as I think that flavor would better complement this combination."
"These were interesting--I wasn't sure about them at first but I enjoyed them more with each bite. I tried to cut down on the sodium by using lower sodium bacon and omitting the ham. Bacon was the dominant flavor, which was fine by me!"
