Combine two favorites and….BOOM… you have a recipe for Frosted Flake Monte Cristo Sandwiches 🙂
This crazy concoction of a sandwich came from two places, my love of a Monte Cristo sandwich.
And also the Frosted Flake coated French toast at a local restaurant.
My family never really knows what will be on the table at dinner, but I assure you it’s rarely a “normal” or “traditional” meal.
But even this had their full attention and my daughter was like “What?! Say that again?!”
I made these on my Blackstone griddle so all the sandwiches would be finished at the same time, but a large skillet can certainly be used.
You just might have to do two smaller batches.
A Monte Cristo typically has ham, swiss, blackberry jam, and served on French toast as the bread.
Sometimes they are even battered and deep fried.
Anytime you make a sandwich, a good quality bread is always a must.
I am using King’s Hawaiian sliced bread. It’s slightly sweet and perfect for French toast.
How to Make Frosted Flake Monte Cristo Sandwiches
First, spread a little blackberry jam on four slices of the bread.
Be careful not to add too much as it can overwhelm the sandwiches.
You can always add more later if needed.
Then a slice of swiss, three slices ham…
Another slice of swiss and then top each off with another slice of bread.
Then crack two eggs into a bowl with 1/4 cup milk and splash of vanilla extract.
Crush up two cups Frosted Flakes cereal and place the crumbs in another bowl.
I crushed mine in a gallon size plastic bag with a rolling pin.
Preheat either a large skillet or Blackstone griddle to medium/ medium low heat.
Add two Tablespoons butter and as the butter melts, dip and coat the sandwiches.
Dip each sandwich, both sides into the egg mixture and then into the cereal mixture.
Pressing the cereal into the bread helps it stick.
Then place each one onto the griddle or into the skillet.
It’s a messy process, but just embrace it because these are SOOOO worth it 🙂
These will cook 2 to 3 minutes per side.
The outside will get crisp and golden brown while the inside gets warm and melty.
Serve Frosted Flake Monte Cristo Sandwiches right away, but let them cool slightly 🙂
You could sprinkle some powdered sugar over top as well, traditionally that is how they are served.
That first bite and this sandwich will have your whole heart in seconds, seriously SOOOO yummy!

Frosted Flake Monte Cristo Sandwiches
Frosted Flake Monte Cristo Sandwiches have King's Hawaiian bread with ham and cheese and coated in crushed Frosted Flake cereal then grilled
- 8 slices bread (I used King's Hawaiian sliced bread)
- 2 oz blackberry jam
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 12 slices deli ham
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups Frosted Flakes cereal
- 2 Tbsps butter
- Optional: powdered sugar
Assemble each sandwich by spreading the blackberry jam on a slice of bread, add a slice of swiss, 3 slices of ham, another slice of swiss and the top slice of bread.
Crack the eggs in a bowl and add the milk and vanilla. Beat with a fork until mixed.
Crush the Frosted Flake cereal (I put the cereal in a gallon size bag and used a rolling pin to crush it). Put the crushed cereal in another bowl.
Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium/ medium low heat (I used my Blackstone griddle) and add the butter. Dip each sandwich, both sides into the egg mixture then into the cereal crumbs and press the crumbs to coat both sides of the sandwich.
Put the sandwich in the skillet or griddle for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Note: I made all four sandwiches at once on my Blackstone griddle, if cooking these in a skillet you may have to cook two sandwiches at once.
Serve with powdered sugar sprinkled over top if desired.
