|Preparation||Cooking||Start to finish|
|21 min.||25 min.||46 min.|
|1||Begin by cutting the crusts off 12 slices Sandwich bread.||5 min.|
|2||Cut 3 slices ham to the size of the bread slices.||5 min.|
|3||Lightly fry the slices of ham in a very hot pan for just a few seconds on each side.||5 min.|
|4||Spread béchamel sauce on 2 slices of bread (tip: use a broad-bladed knife or palette knife).
Place a piece of ham on top of the sauce on one slice of bread.
|5||Then put the other slice of bread on the ham and sprinkle with grated cheese.||5 min.|
|6||Place the croque-monsieur on a baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).
|7||If you are making several croque-monsieurs, it is worth setting up a production line, i.e. spread béchamel sauce on all the bread, then arrange all the slices of ham, etc. This is much faster than doing one at a time.|
|8||Once all your croque-monsieurs are assembled, put the baking sheet into a hot oven.|
|9||Cook for about twenty minutes, watching carefully for colouring.
You can put them under the grill to brown if necessary at the end.
|10||Serve hot or warm if possible, with a green salad for example.|
