Another version of a croque monsieur. Here in Belgium you can eat it in almost every restaurant that serves snacks.
- Spread butter on the two sides of the slices of bread.
- Put the slice of ham and cheese between the bread, making a sandwich.
- You can either bake or grill the sandwich.
- Top the sandwich with a fried egg and enjoy!
Made for the "What's on the Menu" tag game - Breakfast sammies are like a "major food group" around our house & this is our new favorite of the genre. I "pre-warmed" the ham in a small amount of butter to give it a caramelized flavor, used Gouda cheese & then assembled the sammie to grill in the same pan. To ensure a 1-pan effort, I also cooked our basted eggs in the same pan. Served w/fresh fruit plus our morning coffee got us close to the luxury of Eggs Benedict .. w/o the extra calories & fat content. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. YUM!
Thank you for sharing your recipe, which I will make again. It is simply delicious. what a wonderful breakfast it made. I loved that it is made with easy to find ingredients. It was quick and really easy to make, with terrific results. I used a old marble cheddar, it was what I had on hand. It worked well in your recipe.
LOVED IT! Maite, this sandwich is over-the-top delicious! I can't wait to make it again so I can give it 5 stars. I used sourdough bread and fried the egg over-medium, it was sheer perfection. Thank you! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
