OK so Croque Monsieur is basically just a flash ham and cheese toasted sandwich. Delia says it reminds her of the cafes in Paris and that it is “one of the nicest snack meals for one that I know”.
It’s an easy recipe, so I thought I’d knock it off my list of recipes on the Learning how to cook with Delia Smith challenge. I didn’t use grated Parmesan on the outside of the sandwich as I like to keep our sandwich press clean. Instead of Gruyere I used cheddar cheese. It hardly needs a recipe. A quick and easy meal for when you are in a hurry and lacking inspiration.
There are a couple of other people doing cooking challenges, so pop over to their website and cheer them on:
- Mel at The Cook’s Notebook is “cooking the books – cooking from as many of my cookbooks as I can during the year. And, to keep things interesting, make a recipe from each book that I haven’t previously made.” Jo is also cooking the books.
- Brigitte from My Delicious Year has a monthly cook-a-long.
- Leah from Sharing the Food We Love hosts a monthly cooking challenge, The CookBook Guru.
