Croque Monsieur
(a glorified ham sandwich)

2 T mayo
3/4 tsp. Dijono mustard
8 slices white bread
4 slices ham
4 slices turkey (I added this because we had it)
8 thin slices Gruyere cheese (6-8 ounces)
2 T unsalted butter, melted

In small bowl, stir together 1T of mayo and all of mustard. Spread evenly over 4 slices of bread. Arrange a slice of ham and slice of Gruyere on each piece of bread.

Put remaining 4 slices of bread on top of sandwiches. Brush outside of both slices of bread with melted butter.

Heat indoor grill or heat nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill 2-3 minutes on each side or until bread is lightly browned on both sides. Using large spatula, transfer sandwiches to a broiling tray or cookie sheet.

Heat broiler.

Spread top of sandwiches with the remaining tablespoon of mayo and top with 4 remaining slices of Gruyere, being sure to cover crusts.

Broil, cheese side up, for 1-2 minutes until bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm.

I served with fresh strawberries and Sun Chips. Big hit with everyone in my house and my in-laws!

**Curiosity got the best of me and I looked the sandwich up on Wikipedia. Here you go: Croque Monsieur.**
