French Breakfast – Croque Monsieur

French Breakfast – Croque Monsieur

This popular French snack is warm and crisp and contains ham and melted cheese. There are many variations of croque — which comes from the verb croquer, meaning “to crunch” — although butter on both sides of the bread is non-negotiable. Some cooks will then grill the sandwich, while others of a more decadent persuasion will fry it — in more butter. There might be a fried egg on top, which transforms it from a monsieur to a madame because, according to some sources, it ends up looking like a woman’s hat.

A standard in French cafés for more than a century… for good reason. Say “bonjour” to this ham and cheese sandwich dipped in French toast batter and baked until crunchy.
