2009 Recipe Contest Honorable Mention Recipe Jaunny L.


    Yield: 6 servings

    • 2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 2/3 cup plus 2 tbsp milk
    • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 12 slices gluten-free thinly sliced ham
    • 12 slices gluten-free thinly slice turkey
    • 2/3 cup strawberry fruit spread
    • powdered sugar for sprinkling on top

    Pre-heat oven to 375º.

    Lightly grease an 8-inch x 8-inch square baking dish. Mix the Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and the butter with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, add the milk, and stir with a fork. Put half the mixture in the bottom of your baking pan, then sprinkle on 1 cup mozzarella, 1/2 of the thinly sliced ham, then 1/2 of the thinly sliced turkey. Spread strawberry fruit spread on top spreading to within 1/2 inch of the edge, then layer the last half of the ham, then the last half of the turkey, then sprinkle on 1 cup mozzarella. Spread the rest of the baking mix on top, and bake for 30 minutes. When nicely browned remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Cut into wedges and enjoy.

    How this recipe came to be...

    My mother took me to the Ayres Tea Room in Indianapolis, IN when I was young and I chose their Monte Cristo Sandwiches. My mother decided to try her own much easier version of the traditional sandwich that I loved so much. I now have a little boy and I wanted him to have my Mother's Easy Monte Cristo Sandwiches, so I converted her recipe. It is now his favorite. The Ayres Tea Room is gone, and so is my mother. Although the Indiana State Museum has tried to replicate the Ayres Tea Room in their building where I now take my little boy. My Easy Monte Cristo Sandwich recipe is now my little boy's favorite, and he loves taking the leftovers in his lunch.

I have made this easy to prepare recipe four times with excellent results. I use all organic ingredients (easily sourced at COSTCO), and have loved the results. I am incorporating guava and/or apricot in lieu of the strawberry and raspberry for a change-up in flavors. A huge nod to you for providing a sensational and innovative treat!

My wife now has to eat gluten free but I don't. As I am the cook in our house it is up to me to learn a new way of cooking. And gluten free bread type recipes that taste good are hard to find. I have tried this recipe twice now using Pamela's pancake and baking mix. However, instead of the traditional Monte Cristo filling I put Sloppy Joe filling in once and the second time the filling was made from mostly Patty Pan squash. Both times it turned out to be really good. Not good for gluten free but just plain good. I would serve this to guests or bring it to a potluck or as a side dish during the holidays. And I wouldn't need to make excuses for it not tasting right or having a gummy texture. I think it would also be really good if filled with a lemon or lime curd filling, maybe even key lime pie filling. Mmmm.

    • Eric, that is so cool, I will love trying all of your suggestions. Sloppy Joe filling sounds amazing. Bread and Butter pickles are the best with sloppy joe's. My mom always canned her own bread and butter pickles, they were fabulous. I love lemon curd, and sometimes make my own simply substituting gluten free flour mix. Thank you! Jaunny
