Monte Cristo sandwich

What a great sandwich. You can make it savoury by adding Mayonnaise and mustard sauce or sweet by adding jam, it is just your choice and both are equally tasty.

Deep fried Brie/ Camembert cheese

My family and I are cheese lovers. We do enjoy any type of cheese and in any recipe: in a sandwich, in a cake, in a stew or deep fried ones. All are just delicious.

Cut Camembert cheese into your favourite size and shape. Grate orange skin and add it to the bread crumb mixture that we made it earlier.Orange skin gives refreshing taste. Dip and coat Camembert cubes as like as Brie cheese. Set aside.


Heat the oil in a pot, and fry coated cheeses for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on the paper towels and serve it with your favorite jam.
