Crab Cristo at Miss Shirley's

There are sweet mountains to climb at <b><a href="http://findlocal.baltimoresun.com/listings/miss-shirleys-cafe-baltimore">Miss Shirley's</A></b>, French toast stuffed with coconut cream or strawberry cheesecake.

There are sweet mountains to climb at Miss Shirley's, French toast stuffed with coconut cream or strawberry cheesecake. But the Everest of calories at Baltimore's beloved breakfast stop is the Crab Cristo -- jumbo-lump crab meat, smoked ham and Swiss cheese, sandwiched in French Toast, deep-fried and drizzled with a creamy honey mustard and citrus aioli. Finally, chef Brigitte Bledsoe's sweet-and-salty fantasia gets dusted with powdered sugar and Old Bay. It's the best version of the Monte Cristo since the old days at Gampy's, when the fried sandwiches were dipped in blueberry sauce.
