CROQUE-MONSIEUR



Croque-Monsieur image

While French restaurant and country cooking have been thoroughly examined by American home cooks, somewhere between the two styles lies a branch of cuisine that has been almost entirely missed: France's bar and cafe food. This is the realm of snacks like tartines and rillettes, salads and savory tarts, and one of most delicious of all: the croque-monsieur (literally translated as "crunch sir.") Good croque-monsieurs have a few things in common: a single layer of French ham and Gruyere pressed between two thin slices of bread. Some, like this one, are filled and topped with béchamel, which makes the whole thing creamier and better. The bread is brushed with butter, and the sandwich is cooked on a griddle or toasted under a broiler so that the cheese almost liquefies and the bits of ham and cheese hanging out the side fall limp and caramelize. It should be rich, substantial and salty, so you will reach for a glass of wine or beer between bites.

Time 20m

Yield 2 sandwiches

Number Of Ingredients 8

5 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
2/3 cup milk
Sea salt
Freshly grated nutmeg
4 1/3-inch-thick slices country bread (not sourdough or whole wheat)
4 thin slices French ham
2 thin slices Gruyere cheese

Steps:

  • Preheat a two-sided electric griddle on medium-high to high for about 20 minutes, or preheat the oven to 300 degrees and preheat a cast-iron skillet on top of the stove for about 5 minutes. Prepare a bechamel sauce: in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. When bubbles have subsided, add flour and whisk vigorously for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil, and cook until thick. Remove from heat, and season to taste with salt and nutmeg.
  • Spread two slices of bread generously with sauce. Lay two slices of ham on top of each, and top each with a slice of cheese; ham and cheese should slightly overlap edges of bread. Top each with a slice of bread.
  • In a small saucepan, melt remaining the 4 tablespoons butter. Brush the sandwiches on both sides with butter, making sure that the edges are well covered. If you're using a griddle, place cheese side down, close the griddle and cook until the bread is toasted dark and cheese is leaking out and bubbling. If you're using a skillet, place sandwiches cheese side down and cook on stove top until well browned, then turn and brown again. Transfer skillet to oven, and bake until heated through and cheese is bubbling. Serve hot.

CROQUE MONSIEUR



Croque Monsieur image

"This is my all-time favorite sandwich-it reminds me of growing up in France."

Provided by Marc Murphy

Time 25m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Kosher salt
1/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese (about 1 ounce)
4 3/4-inch-thick slices country white bread
12 thin slices Black Forest ham or other lean ham (about 8 ounces)
2 cups coarsely grated Gruyere cheese (about 8 ounces)
Freshly ground pepper

Steps:

  • Make the bechamel. In a small saucepot, heat the milk over medium heat until warm to the touch; set aside. In a separate small saucepot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking continuously, until the raw flour taste has been cooked out, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the warm milk until smooth. Grate the nutmeg into the bechamel.
  • Season the bechamel with salt and bring to a simmer, whisking continuously, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the Gruyere. Whisk the mixture until smooth and set aside.
  • Assemble the sandwiches. Heat the broiler on high. Set the bread on a sheet pan and place 3 slices of the ham on each slice of bread. Spoon a thin layer of the bechamel on top of the ham. Divide the Gruyere evenly among the sandwiches and season with pepper. Broil until the cheese melts and turns golden brown, about 3 minutes.

CROQUE MONSIEUR



Croque Monsieur image

This delicious and classy sandwich works great for breakfast or brunch. I've twisted the traditional recipe by substituting Gouda for Gruyere, adding a splash of white wine to the cheese sauce, and building it on San Francisco-style sourdough bread. To make this sandwich into Croque Madame, top it with a sunny side up egg and a grinding of pepper. Enjoy!

Provided by Sarah Wiebe

Categories     100+ Breakfast and Brunch Recipes     Eggs     Breakfast Sandwich Recipes

Time 25m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 12

¼ cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
⅓ cup heavy cream
¼ cup dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste
1 dash ground nutmeg
¾ cup shredded Gouda cheese
8 (3/4 inch thick) slices sourdough bread
4 teaspoons butter
¼ cup Dijon mustard
8 slices deli ham
4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps:

  • Melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Gradually stir the flour into the butter. Add small portions of the cream and wine alternately, whisking after each addition to thicken before introducing the next amount. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Melt the cheese into the liquid in small amounts, stirring continually. Reduce heat to low and keep sauce warm until using.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread; spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Dijon mustard on the opposite side of each slice. Assemble the sandwiches by placing four slices of bread, buttered side down, into the skillet. Top each slice of bread with two slices of ham folded to completely fit on the bread; spoon equal amounts of the cheese sauce over the ham, reserving some of the sauce for later. Place the remaining slices of bread, mustard side down, atop the ham and cheese. Grill the sandwiches on each side until the bread is an even, golden brown color. Spoon a little of the cheese sauce on top of each sandwich before serving. Garnish each sandwich with 1 teaspoon of parsley.

THE PERFECT CROQUE MONSIEUR



The perfect croque monsieur image

Master the croque monsieur with soft sourdough, gruyère, smoked ham and creamy mustard mayo. You'll relish every mouthful of this brunch classic.

Provided by Emma Freud

Categories     Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Snack, Treat

Time 50m

Number Of Ingredients 16

4 slices from a white sourdough or crusty white
20g butter, melted
1 tsp Dijon mustard
100g grated gruyère
4 thin slices of great smoked ham
125ml milk
125ml cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 bay leaves
1 small onion, chopped
20g butter
20g plain flour
1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard
fresh nutmeg, grated
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp mayonnaise

Steps:

  • First, make a perfect béchamel sauce. Put the milk, cream, garlic, bay leaves and onion in a small pan over a medium heat and stir together. Heat until nearly boiling, then turn the heat off and leave for 10 mins to infuse. Pass the liquid through a sieve and discard the bay and onion.
  • Melt the butter with the flour in another pan and cook over a gentle heat until it smells biscuity. Gradually whisk in the warm milk and bring to a gentle boil, stirring regularly, then add the Dijon mustard, a little grating of fresh nutmeg and some seasoning. It should be a lovely thick creamy sauce with a deep flavour.
  • Brush the slices of bread with melted butter. Place them on a baking tray and toast one side under a grill, buttered-side up, until golden. Take them out and heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
  • Turn the bread over and spread each slice with a thin layer of Dijon, followed by a layer of the béchamel. Cover the sauce with grated gruyère, and then a slice of ham. Form the slices into two sandwiches, spread a thin layer of the sauce over the top slice and sprinkle more gruyère on top. Put the sandwiches in the oven and bake for 10-15 mins or until golden. Mix the mustard and mayo together and serve alongside.

CROQUE MONSIEUR

1/4 cup Dijon or whole-grain mustard
1/2 pound cooked ham, thinly sliced
1/3 pound Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced, plus 1 cup freshly grated (about 2 ounces)

  • Spread 4 slices of bread with butter, then flip over and spread with a thin layer of dijon mustard. Top 2 of the slices with a slice of cheese, then add 2-3 slices of ham. I recommend folding them in to create a bit of height/texture in the sandwich. Top with more cheese, then add bread mustard-side-down (so both sandwiches are buttered on the outside).
  • Add the sandwiches to a non-stick pan over low-medium heat. Fry until they turn deep golden on the bottom with the cheese just starting to melt, then flip and fry the other side until golden.
  • Spread over béchamel sauce (give it a quick stir over heat if you need to loosen it up) then top with a good sprinkling of parmesan. Place under the grill and broil on high until golden and crisp on top.
