Croque Monsieur on white

croque monsieur

“Excuse-moi, monsieur. Could you help me change this light bulb, you capable, manly sandwich.” Flattery will get you on the good side of this grilled ham and cheese sandwich. While a genuine French version may be made with bechamel or mornay sauce, a limited American kitchen may have to resort to homemade dijon mustard substitute. Either way, the salty ham mixes with the melted cheese, juices binding the bread together in ways that you don’t want to imagine in your arteries. Just take a big bite and enjoy the moment you have. Even the light bulb can wait for later.
