Croques Monsieurs

Using a shallow grill pan, a heavy plate and a lid, croques monsieurs are easily made on the cooker or stove-top. Sandwiches are flipped when the cheese on the bottom is soft. Continue cooking, with the lid on top. I do not bother to replace the heavy plate after the croques monsieurs are turned.

Thinly-sliced ham, together with Swiss cheese, home-made bread and a few spoonfuls of butter are transformed into the French luncheon classic, croques monsieurs. Served with a salad or soup, they are part of an elegant luncheon.

Serve croques monsieurs with mayonnaise and Dijon mustard on the side.

Elegant Croque Monsieur

Swiss cheese and Black Forest ham are pan-grilled inside of two buttered pain brioché slices. This dish is a frequent component of an elegant luncheon, accompanied by cream of celery soup, artichoke soup, or carrot Vichyssoise.
