Croque Monsieur

 Yes, its a cheese and ham sandwich, but its a damn fine one!

Serves 2
Butter, soft enough for spreading
4 slices of coarse textured white bread (Pain de campagne would be a good choice)
Around 200g  Gruyère cheese
2 slices of honey-roast ham
Dijon mustard

  • Butter the bread on both sides.
  • Cover the slices with a layer of  Gruyère, then a layer of ham and smear with mustard and cover with another layer of cheese.
  • Close your sandwich and grill 2-4 minutes each side until golden and the cheese has melted.
  • Cut in half to eat.


  1. A French classic snack! :) By the way, you can add a fried egg on the top of the croque-monsieur, and then it becomes... a croque-madame :)
