Croque-Monsieur

This is a vegetarian version of the classic French dish.

Ingredients:

  • 100ml milk
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 125g grated cheese
  • 4 slices of vegetarian ham
  • salt and pepper for seasoning

Method:

  1. Put the cold milk and flour in a small sauce pan and put over a low heat. Stir it every minute as it warms up.
  2. While the milk comes to a simmer (and while continuing to stir regularly), take two of the slices of bread and spread the mustard evenly over them.
  3. Place a slice of the vegetarian ham on each of the slices of bread.
  4. Divide half of the grated cheese between the two stacks of bread and ham.
  5. Top each with the remaining slices of vegetarian ham, followed by the remaining slices of bread.
  6. Gently press down on the top slices to compress the sandwich slightly.
  7. By now the milk and flour should be starting to thicken, continue to stir it often and simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes.
  8. Stir the remaining cheese into the milk sauce and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Spread the milk and cheese sauce over the top of the two sandwiches.
  10. Place under a grill on a medium heat and cook until nicely browned.
  11. Serve immediately so that they are still warm.

Serves 2.
