The popular Umami Burger chain left food porn connoisseurs foaming at the mouth last week with the announcement of their Monte Cristo Burger, a limited-time menu item created for the restaurant by Top-Chef winner Michael Voltaggio.
Umami's take on the Monte Cristo smothers a beef patty in gruyère fondue and prosciutto, then sandwiches it between two custard-soaked fried buns, sprinkled with powdered sugar and is served with a side of maple syrup.
For those that live out of proximity of an Umami Burger, the folks at YumSugar have pieced together an equally mouthwatering version inspired by Voltaggio's creation...with a full recipe to boot:
