A croque monsieur is a French sandwich made of ham, Gruyère cheese, french bread, and Dijon mustard. The name roughly translates to "crispy mister," but another translation might be, "crunch on this, my man."
For 1 sandwich:
- 2 thick slices french bread
- 2 tsp butter
- 1 oz (55g) Gruyère, thinly sliced
- 2 oz (55g)ham, thinly sliced
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
Butter one side of each slice of bread and place on the grill. Spread with mustard. Place ham on one piece of bread, and cheese on the other. When the bread is crunchy, place the cheese side on top of the ham. Serve immediately.
