Saturday Morning Croque Monsieur

I am not a big breakfast eater in general, but this rich and savory sandwich is no regular breakfast item.  It is a large piece of contentment.  I followed Ina Garten's recipe which finishes the sandwich by topping it with a bechamel sauce and more gruyere and broiling it.  I made mine with prosciutto as that was the type of ham product I had on hand.  Stella and Chris opted for a poached egg as well.  Couch time would seem eminent, but instead, there will be no rest for us gourmands.  After all, we have to work up our appetites for dinner!

  1. I ordered a Croque Monsieur last night... it was not nearly as good as yours. Very disappointing.
