Le Crazy Good Ham and Cheese
The French croque monsieur is a sandwich that somehow manages to be utterly simple (it's just bread, ham, cheese and béchamel sauce) yet ridiculously over-the-top. It's a jack of all trades, too, serving as a quick bite, a late-night snack or yes, even breakfast. We recommend turning it into a "croque madame," if you're so inclined, serving it with a fried egg on top, which creates a delicious oozy sauce—break out the fork and knife for this one.
