Leftovers of the Croque Monsieur/Madame

Now that I had made the Croque Monsieur/Madame, I had to figure out what to do with the materials I had left.
Now I'm a big fan in utilizing what I had.

So I had sauteed some onions till they were opaque, chopped some mushrooms in one small pan.

I had soaked some bread in the egg mix (that had garlic powder, minimal nutmeg and minimal cinnamon) and the usual salt and pepper.

I then placed the soaked bread on top of the stove top grill.
Once both sides of the french toast were cooked somewhat thorough, I then topped each bread slice with the Gruyere while I placed the ham slices on the grill as well to crisp up.

Once the bread was crisp I put the ham on slice, and I put the onion and mushroom mix onto the other.  Then placed them together.

Needless to say it's a sloppy 'grilled' sandwich.

The boyfriend did enjoy this rendition.  So much so, that we may experiment and use a different cheese.

Would I cook this again?  Sure.

  1. Oh, Amy, this looks delicious. I cook many grilled cheese sandwiches myself (of course), but I'm always afraid to use a bechamel when I do. This makes me less fearful.

    Also, fontina = yum.
