Maybe I did something wrong? I decided to use sliced whole wheat sandwich bread for this sandwich and dipped the sandwich in egg (no egg substitute available) and milk. My sandwich was too soggy. The flavors were good, but the bread was mushy. I prefer to make a grilled ham and cheese and then fry an egg to eat over the sandwich or to cut a circle in the top bread slice and place the sunny-side-up-fried-egg inside the sandwich so the yolk peeks out.
Dijon Croque Monsieur
Instead of your usual grilled ham and cheese, try this French-style sandwich that's enhanced by the zip of whole-grain mustard. One online reviwer claims, "Dijon Croque Monsieur is one of our favorite sandwiches to have for dinner served along side a salad."
