    Elaniemay's Note:

    Common variations include adding dijon mustard, or brushing melted butter on the outside before cooking. Sometimes grated cheese is sprinkled on the top as well. In truth there are as many variations as there are cooks. Submitted for ZWT 8.

      A great sandwich! I used whole grain bread, a nice smoked ham and gruyere cheese. I did add the dijon mustard and I heartily recommend the addition, it added a lot of favor. The oven method of toasting the sandwich was perfect, it freed me to do other things and the sandwich came out a perfectly toasted light brown. I cooked it at 350F for about 15 mins and I did flip it over once while it was cooking. I'll make this many times!

      No offense but this is not a Croque Monsieur. The actual recipe is a very delicious and rich sandwich as it is covered in a bechamel sauce. Try it with top notch ham and cheese on a brioche bread covered in bechamel and you will find bliss.
