Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

From the Test Kitchen

A variation of the French classic Croque-Monsieur, the Monte Cristo is essentially a ham and cheese sandwich with french toast as the bread. For our take, you'll use a combo of prosciutto, smoked gouda, dijon, and a maple-fig jam on the inside, then follow the traditional method of dipping the sandwiches in egg batter and pan-frying in butter to get that sweet, french toast-like exterior.

step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Thinly slice the cheese. In a large bowl, combine the eggs and cream; beat until smooth. Remove the plastic lining between the slices of prosciutto. In a bowl, combine the fig spread and maple syrup.

2 Assemble the sandwiches

Assemble the sandwiches using the bread, mustard, maple-fig spread, prosciutto (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding), and sliced cheese. Dip each sandwich into the bowl of beaten eggs until coated on both sides. Transfer to a plate.

3 Cook the sandwiches & serve your dish

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the butter on medium until melted. Add the sandwiches. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Transfer to a work surface; carefully halve on an angle. Serve the finished sandwiches dusted with as much of the powdered sugar as you’d like (you will have extra). Enjoy!
