Monty Cristo Waffle ‘Wiches

Serves 1

This is a great recipe to make as a surprise for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day breakfast or brunch (with the help of another grown-up helper)!


  • 1 tablespoon apricot all fruit spread
  • 2 frozen multi-grain waffles, lightly toasted
  • 1 slice Black Forest ham
  • 1 slice smoked turkey breast
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened


  1. Ask a grown-up helper (GH) to pre-heat a panini press for you. You may also grill the sandwich in a skillet instead.
  2. Spread the apricot fruit spread on one side of each waffle and sandwich the ham, turkey and Swiss cheese in between. Lightly coat the outside of each waffle with butter.
  3. Ask your GH to grill the sandwich in the panini press. Cook until the cheese is melted and the waffles are golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Cut into quarters and eat while still warm.
