It always seems like the holidays sneak up on us. One minute we’re at the beach in July and suddenly it’s Thanksgiving! Now, I don’t know about you, but no matter how well I plan, the holidays are always crazy. But no matter how hectic they are, you still need your fuel and that often means a quick and cheesy breakfast is an order. A quick meal is especially important on the weekends when there are parties to attend and shopping to be done and let’s not forget that all important trip to the tree farm. Thankfully, a quick breakfast doesn’t have to mean a boring breakfast, Arla’s Creamy Havarti Cheese makes breakfast easy and flavorful!
These simple Havarti Monte Cristo’s are a family favorite! I mean, who doesn’t love this idea of meat and melted cheese sandwiched in warm french toast and dipped in Maine maple syrup? If you don’t, you’re crazy! It’s good stuff!
This is the perfect breakfast to make when you have company over or if it’s just the two of you. You can try it out with bacon or sausage and really mix things up with Arla’s Havarti Dill!
The Arla Dofino brand of cheese includes a delicious range of family-friendly cheese types such as Havarti, Gouda, Edam, Muenster and Fontina. Arla cheeses are naturally good from farm to fridge. The cheese is free of added hormones and preservatives, and crafted with quality, natural ingredients in an environmentally friendly way.
