Introduce kids to international cuisine with French version of grilled cheese

Croque Monsieur

Yield: 4 sandwiches
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for grilling
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch nutmeg
12 ounces Gruyère, grated
8 slices good bread, crusts removed
Dijon mustard
½ pound good, sliced ham
Method:
In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and add flour. Whisk until bubbly, 3-4 minutes.
Slowly add milk, whisking constantly, until sauce is thickened. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg and ½ cup grated Gruyère and set aside.
To assemble sandwiches, lightly smear 1 side of bread with mustard, add a slice of ham, sprinkle with some Gruyère, then add the other slice of bread.
In a heavy skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter, then saute sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Place on a sheet pan and drizzle the tops with cheese sauce.
Turn on broiler and when hot, place sandwiches under broiler for 3 minutes, or until bubbling and browning in spots. Serve immediately.
