Make your own... Croque Monsieur

Technically a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, a Croque Monsieur is a must to have in ones repertoire - morning, noon or night. Originally served in 1910 as a fast food snack on the Boulevard des Capucines, it still remains as popular today.

Although I am sure my recipe for this classic snack is not original, it is one that I will never change. Somehow the mixture of cream, Gruyere cheese and Dijon mustard once melted transforms into a cheesy, sharp yet creamy sauce.

Pull this recipe out for a carefree yet delicious brunch, a fantastic midnight snack, or as a last result when the dinner you were planning is burnt to a crisp and your dinner companions just arrived at the door. Somehow a Croque Monsieur solves every problem.

4 slices crunch white bread
4-8 slices good quality smoked ham
8 tablespoons Gruyere cheese, grated
4-6 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoons mustard

Mix the grated cheese, cream and mustard together to form a thick paste.

Toast one side of your slices of bread. Spread a thin layer of butter and one or two slices of ham on the untoasted side. Spread with the cheesy mixture and grill until golden and bubbly.

Serves 2 (as a snack)
To turn a Croque Monsieur into a Croque Madame simple add a fried egg on top!

Bon Appetite

Wow! What a coincidence. Yesterday, I asked my sister to make this Crooque monsieur for me, but she could not make it because she was too busy finding a business management dissertation writing service for her dissertation. Although she has promised, she will make it for me once she gets free from her dissertation.

You know what? I love to eat a lot. The main reason is that I'm getting fat is that I cannot stop myself from eating don't know why. The thing is that I only love eating not cooking and I find searching for the best logo design services in Australia easier than understanding a whole recipe and cooking it afterward. This is a great post and due to your detailed guide with the easiest wordings, I might also be trying your recipes in the future.
