Croque Monsieur

Here is nice easy recipe and one of my all time favorites. I make a slightly "lighter" version for myself by using egg beaters, light miracle whip, low fat swiss cheese, and cooking spray for frying. But I've included the original recipe here. Enjoy.

Croque Monsieur

8 slices french bread
8 slices ham
4 slices swiss cheese
grainy dijon mustard
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil for frying

1. Make sandwiches. Spread dijon on one side of bread, and mayo on the other. Include two slices of ham and 1 slice of swiss per sandwich.

2. Mix flour, eggs, milk, baking powder and salt in a shallow dish.

3. Dip sandwiches in batter, and let sit for 10 minutes to allow bread to absorb some batter.

4. Fry sandwiches in oil over medium heat 3-5 minutes per side until golden brown.
