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!
