The Monte Cristo is one of the tastiest sandwiches in the world. Probably one of the most unhealthy as well. But fear not, cause your boy has a recipe for ya.

Ingredients;

2 slices Ezekiel bread (I use the low sodium) (aprox 160 cals)
1 cup egg whites (aprox 120 cals)
4oz sliced roasted turkey (the real stuff, not deli meat) (aprox 126 cals)
cheese (optional) (cals vary)
1 tbsp splenda (0 cals)

Prep:
Make the sandwich (turkey/cheese btw the bread)
Dip the sandwich into the egg whites til covered completely
Grill the sandwich (both sides) on a skillet or pan
Dump the splenda on top of the finished product

Breakdown of macros
Cals: Aprox 400
Protein: 62gs
Fats: 5gs
Carbs: 28gs

These values will rise if you add cheese.

That is a clean, anabolic sandwich recipe... Nice bro.

You could probably get away with a low cal, fat free cheese as well.

Peace, G

Thanks for this recipe bro. Was just talking to the old lady about this sandwich a few nights ago, and talking about how I miss Benigans around here since they all closed up around the house. Definitely wanna give this a shot on my next refeed days.
