Croque Monsieur


Now this is a spin on an old-fashioned ham and cheese sandwich. It is ideal for a light lunch or early breakfast; easy to prepare and quick to impress. Good quality ham and Gruyere or Emmenthal cheese is essential. You’ll need a crusty un-sliced loaf of bread, a little stale to get the best results.

Croque Monsieur

2 slices of crusty bread
2 slices of cheese
2 slices of ham
Truffle butter
Truffle Mustard
1 egg yolk
50ml cream

  1. Slice the bread thinly. Lay the bread flat.
  2. Spread some truffle butter on the slices, place the cheese on both slices, place ham on both slices, spread with truffle mustard, press together, (as a sandwich) trim the sandwich if needed.
  3. Whisk together the egg and cream. Dip the sandwich into the mixture before pan frying golden brown on both sides in a little butter.
  4. Cut in half and serve.
  5. A rocket and pear salad will balance and complement the intensity of the sandwich.
