Preparation

1

Cut 4 slices of bread. Set aside.

2

Prepare béchamel-style sauce: melt butter and add flour all at once. Mix and cook for 2 minutes to make a roux. Pour in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens.

3

Grate cheese and add to sauce. Set aside. 

4

Butter the bread slices and turn them over (butter side out). Spread bread slices with a thin layer of mustard. 

5

Cover with béchamel sauce. Place a halved slice of white ham on each slice of bread. Add slices of Emmental cheese to two slices of bread.  

6

Close sandwiches and place in a frying pan. Heat over medium-low heat. Turn over when golden and continue cooking the other side. 
Cut the croque-monsieur in half and serve.
