Sandwiches

Croque Monsieur or Madame on Buttery Croissant

4
For the Sauce:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
campaignIcon Food Safety
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1½ cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
½ cup Gruyere cheese, grated
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
For the Sandwich:
4 buttery croissants
Dijon mustard
8 slices of your favorite ham, sliced
2-3 cups Gruyere cheese, grated
Other:
4 eggs (if making croque-madame)
2 avocados, pitted, halved, and thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 350 F. For the Sauce: In a small saucepan, melt the better over medium heat. Add the flour and stir together to create a roux. Pour in the milk in small additions. Allow the sauce to slightly thicken between each addition, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Once all milk is added, continue to whisk and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Turn heat to low. Add Gruyere and Parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Take off heat and add salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste. Set aside. Note: Sauce will thicken more as it cools down. This is fine. It is good to have a very thick sauce as it stays on top of the sandwiches better during cooking.
