Monte Cristo Sandwiches (Gluten-Free)
I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.View all articles by Destiny Stone

Traditionally a French recipe, this gluten-free recipe can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a finger food for any event. The yummy possibilities are endless. Baking time is 30 minutes, but preparation time is very minimal, and the results are so worth it!

- 12 slices gluten-free ham - thinly sliced
- 12 slices gluten-free turkey - thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup strawberry fruit spread (or fruit spread of your choice)
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar - to sprinkle on top
- Lightly grease an 8-by-8-inch square baking dish.
- Mix the pancake mix and the butter with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, add the milk, and stir with a fork.
- Put half the mixture in the bottom of your baking pan, then sprinkle on 1 cup mozzarella, 1/2 of the thinly sliced ham, then 1/2 of the thinly sliced turkey.
- Spread strawberry fruit spread on top spreading to within 1/2 inch of the edge, then layer the last half of the ham, then the last half of the turkey, then sprinkle on 1 cup mozzarella.
- Spread the rest of the baking mix on top, and bake for 30 minutes.
