Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwich

A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich, a variation of the French croque-monsieur. Being 2015 and all we kicked it up a notch for waffle week and placed this monster of a sandwich on our waffle iron. Let's just say it's real and it's spectacular. (Guess the show hehehe)
