croque monsieur

delia smith

2 large slices good quality white bread buttered

50g Gruyere finely grated

3 slices smoked cooked ham Parma ham or wafer thin ham

10g butter melted

1 dessertspoon finely grated Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano)

salt and freshly milled black pepper

Preheat the grill to its highest setting.

On one slice of the buttered bread spread half the grated Gruyere then cover that with the slices of ham folding them if need be to fit the size of the bread.

Sprinkle the rest of the Gruyere on top of the ham season then press the other slice of bread on top of that and press it down very firmly.

You can at this stage cut off the crusts but I think they add extra crunchiness.

Brush half the melted butter on the top side of the sandwich sprinkle it with half the Parmesan and press it in.

Transfer the sandwich to the grill pan and grill it for about 2 minutes 50mm from the heat.

When its golden brown turn it over brush the other side with the remaining melted butter sprinkle the rest of the Parmesan all over and grill for another 2 minutes.

Remove it from the grill cut it into quarters and eat it while its still crunchy.

This is my version of the toasted cheese and ham sandwich of cafe society fame and just thinking about it and imagining atmospheric crowded pavement cafes makes me long to be in Paris and eat it there. But that not being possible its one of the nicest snack meals for one that I know.

Serves 1
