If you have travel to France, chances are you have had a croque monsieur. A croque monsieur is a French ham and cheese sandwich. It is a lunch or snack and a good reminder of the cafe’s of Paris where it was first introduced in 1910.
Here is an easy recipe that reminds me of the wonderful French Basque country and cuisine, located in southernmost Nouvelle Aquitaine region of France. Many of the dishes prepared in this area will include specialties like Piment d’Espelette peppers, Jambon de Bayone ham , and Basque sheep’s milk cheese.
