Sandwich Croque Monsieur

Sandwich Croque Monsieur

There are countless ways to make the Mixed Sandwich. We like it best with pastrami and béchamel…

To pay tribute on International Mixed Sandwich Day (April 12) we wanted to share this recipe with all of you, because good tastes better if shared!

Ingredients for 4 sandwiches

For the “Bechamel”:

  • 60gr. EVOO Oh! Family Selection
  • 50gr. flour pastry
  • 650gr. whole milk
  • 3 gr. of salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Ground nutmeg (brown teaspoon)
  • Sweet and sour paprika (brown spoon)

For 1 Croque Monsieur sandwich

  • 60gr. pastrami (beef sausage) or any cooked sausage (york ham, turkey breast, etc.)
  • 40gr. grated fat cheese that you prefer (in this case we use grouyere)
  • 2 slices of consistent and fluffy bread, it will work and fill a lot.
  • 1 tablespoon mustard dijon

Preparation of the Croque Monsieur Recipe

  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan Oh! Family Reserve. When it is hot, without boiling, add the flour little by little, mixing with some bars to avoid lumps.
  • Let this roux (fat and flour) roast for about 10 minutes over low heat and start adding the milk, always mixing with the rods.
  • Add the salt, nutmeg, pepper and paprika on the side.
  • Leave on low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring. We reserve on a tray for tempering.
  • We toast the sausage in a frying pan; immediately, we toast the breads on both sides with a stream of evoo Oh! Family Reserve.
  • Once everything is toasted, spread a tablespoon of dijon mustard on one of the slices. On the same slice, spread a tablespoon of béchamel sauce and half of the cheese.
  • We assemble the sausage, close the sandwich with the other slice and top with another tablespoon of bechamel on top of the sandwich, as well as the rest of the cheese.
  • We end up gratin in the oven.
