In France this popular snack is known as a croque-monsieur. If you top it with a fried egg, it becomes a croque-madame. A very satisfying and filling snack.


Serves: 3 

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 6 slices white bread
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 12 slices thinly sliced ham
  • 4 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Use 2 tablespoons of the butter to spread over one side of each slice of bread. On three of the slices, spread a layer of Dijon mustard over the butter and top each with 4 slices of ham. On the other three, spread mayonnaise and top each one with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Press ham and cheese sides of sandwiches together.
  2. In a flat bottomed dish, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, eggs and water until blended. Set aside.
  3. Heat remaining butter and vegetable oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture and fry in the oil and butter until browned, flipping to brown on each side.
