Never had a Monte Cristo with jam. Maybe someone thought ham was a
typo...:-)

Jam? What jam? Monte Cristo sandwiches don't have jam on them or in
them.

Which is why it's served on the side. I've eaten MC's all over
the country and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to
the areas that serve it with jam/sugar than the ones that don't.
IOW - it's not a regional thing (I don't even think the MC
sandwich has a "home state").

I personally think jam and sugar is revolting on an MC. Some
places will even use a sweet batter, which is big turn off for me
and ruins the whole thing since there's no "opting out" of that.

It seems to be the American version of the French 'croque monsieur',
which is never served with either jam or icing sugar. The Monte Cristo
is often believed to have originated in Los Angeleles but not something
so easily provable.

So that's why white powder is sprinkled on a perfectly good sandwich.
