A croque-monsieur is a hot ham and cheese (typically emmental or gruyère) grilled sandwich. It originated in France as a fast-food snack served in cafés and bars.

    1. Spoon the béchamel sauce to the tops of both bread slices.

    3. Close to make a sandwhich.
    4. Spread a little bit of butter on both outsides of sandwich.

    6. Brown each side.

    In some places the béchamel sauce is placed on top of the sandwich instead of inside. If that's how you want to do it, you can add the béchamel sauce after browning the sandwich on the pan and before baking it in the oven. Sprinkle parmesan or gruyere cheese on top of béchamel sauce and Brown in oven.
