If you are in any way a calorie counter or watching your intake of food, you should probably stop reading because this is not the recipe for you! I genuinely don’t even want to try and count the calories, ignorance is bliss sure!
If you’re unsure what a croque monsieur is, it’s a hot sandwich made with ham and cheese. It originated in France and I’ve had one when there while sitting in front of the Eiffel Tower and it was fab. Lockdown had us craving one and seeing as we can’t exactly get abroad at the moment, or out of our own county even (cheers lockdown) himself decided to attempt one, and wow, best croque monsieur I’ve had to date. I was full for a week!
Below is the recipe and step by step, and these are also in a Cooking highlight on my Instagram!
