Delicious Ham & Cheese Sandwich

My love affair with croque monsieurs began during my tenure in the kitchen at Daniel in New York City. Sandwiches aren’t the first things that may come to mind when you think of a three-Michelin-star French venue, but to this day, I dream about those gooey ham and cheese sandos, which meet somewhere between a grilled cheese and savory French toast.

While not available in the dining room, they became one of the most popular finger foods for catered events. Guests weren’t attacking the waitstaff for caviar-stuffed crepes tied together with blanched chives or cucumber cups filled with tuna tartare and Meyer lemon coulis (though both were also stellar canapés). They were all looking to stuff their faces with as many croque monsieurs as they could get.
