How to make a proper croque monsieur
Cheese sauce ingredients.
Ok, cheese sauce time, add a nice knob off butter, about 50-70g
Then melt it on a medium heat.
Add enough flour till it comes together.
Till it looks like this.
Start to add the warmed milk, a little at a time and stir
Add some more
Until it looks like this!
Grate some nutmeg into the white sauce
Just like this:)
Grate the gruyere cheese
Just like this, the finer it is the easier it will melt in the white sauce.
Get a nice dollop (love that word) of Dijon
Add to the sauce
Add gruyere cheese
Add salt to taste
Add Worcester sauce and taste, don't go too crazy, just add enough till it tastes awesome!
Drink wine and preheat your oven to 170-180c
Line a tray with grease proof paper
Slice on the angle 4 nice slices off sourdough
Start spreading on the cheese sauce
Add ham and season
Close le Croque
Add another knob/chunk of butter to a pan
And melt until it goes quiet
Add the Croque Monsieur's till they are nice and browned on both sides
Place on tray
Splodge on the very tasty cheese sauce
Add more fattening gruyere cheese
Bake in oven for about 12-18 minutes then grill/broil till they look like this
Cut in half and let the calories kick in!
Finish and drink more wine!!!
