Croque Monsieur
Servings: 4 Prep 5 mins Grill 6 mins Broil 2 mins


  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 8 slices white bread
  • 4 thin slices ham
  • 8 thin slices Gruyere cheese ( 6 to 8 ounces total)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Make It

1. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise and the mustard. Spread evenly over 4 slices of bread. Arrange a slice of ham and a slice of Gruyere on each piece of bread.

2. Put the remaining 4 slices of bread on top of the sandwiches. Brush the outside of both slices of bread with the melted butter.

3. Heat an indoor grill or heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat.

4. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until the bread is lightly browned on both sides and there are nice-looking grill marks on the bread. Using a large spatula, transfer the sandwiches to a broiling tray or cookie sheet.

5. Heat the broiler.

6. Spread the top of the sandwiches with the remaining tablespoon mayonnaise and top with the 4 remaining slices Gruyere, being sure to cover the bread crusts.

7. Broil, cheese side up, for 1 to 2 minutes until bubbly and golden brown. Serve hot.
