Croque Monsieur

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke

Similar to a Monte Cristo, a croque monsieur is a French-style grilled ham and cheese sandwich that is dipped in egg batter then cooked in a skillet. This version is like a savory stuffed French toast. Keep the finished ones warm in a 200° oven while cooking the others.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
