Today I’m sharing a Croque Monsieur Sandwich.  A Croque Monsieur is a French bistro sandwich. They start out with a ham and cheese sandwich and then up the ante by dipping it in beaten egg and frying it in butter. Like a grilled cheese, but way better. Don’t you just love the French.

The final step is to cook the sandwich in butter in a frying pan. I added a little green salad to mine, made with some baby lettuce from the garden. Such a good lunch.
