And with this I'm kicking off 7 years of writing, right here.
And all that matters is I'm still here and so are you! And for that a big warm & fuzzy thank you!
So let's get going with some decadent Croque-Monsieur for Sunday brunch.
Served in Parisian bistros, this beloved decadent sandwich full of ham, Gruyere and Béchamel sauce is such a decadent way to enjoy Sunday brunch. A side of spinach and strawberry salad and ooh la la!
There are those who only put ham & cheese in the middle of the sandwich but I love putting some of the Béchamel in and on top of the sandwich which makes it so much for moist. Because the thickness of the bread does matter. It is common to use a firm white sandwich so you get perfect corners and of course makes piling on much easier.
But I prefer using a nice artisinal bread and yes my hams peeking out one corner and cheese is peeking out the other but that's what makes it great on a plate. That rustic look and full on flavor!
When I make this, just because of how rich this is, a salad is all you need on the side with some wine and it's such a lovely meal to share surrounded by family and friends.
