Recipe by AlainaF
READY IN: 25mins


  • 2
    tablespoons mustard
  • 8
    tablespoons bechamel sauce, divided
  • 8
    slices sandwich bread
  • 4
    ounces baked ham, thinly sliced
  • 8
    thin slices cooked red potatoes
  • 8
    slices reblochon cheese (enough to fill 4 sandwiches)
  • 4
    tablespoons butter, softened


  • Preheat the broiler to the lowest heat setting.
  • Evenly divide and spread the mustard on 4 slices of bread. Place a few slices of ham, followed by 2 slices of potatoes, 2 slices Cantal, and 1 tablespoon of Béchamel on the mustard-side of the bread. Cover the cheese with the remaining slices of bread and spread the butter on the outside surfaces of the sandwiches.
  • Place the sandwiches on an ungreased baking sheet and broil for about 5 minutes, turn them over, and continue cooking until they are crispy and golden brown, about 5 additional minutes. Spread the top of the sandwich with 1 tablespoon Béchamel and serve while hot.
