After a visit this past weekend, my hat is off…
The croque monsieur sandwich is a French creation — obviously — that features ham and cheese and good bread that is dipped in a beaten egg before being grilled or baked.
Appearing as a quick bite in French cafes as early as 1910, it may also be made in a metal-hinged press or “iron” shaped as a shell. There are a host of “croque” variations and different cousins in this line of sammies.
You can get a croque monsieur today at Kitchener’s Culinary Studio: “real slow” roasted ham and cheese, egg-dipped and butter fried and topped with Mornay sauce.[ Image: Pinterest ]
