Years ago, a French friend of mine introduced me to Croque-Monsieur, the French version of a toasted ham and Swiss sandwich. I remember it being loaded with butter and cheese, and absolutely the most delicious sandwich in the world. My friend was somewhat addicted to these sandwiches, and after having one myself I could see why. Gruyère cheese and ham just belong together. According to the word croque comes from the verb croquer or to crunch. So a Croque-Monsieur roughly translates to Mister Crunchy. The feminine version, a Croque Madam, includes a fried egg on top. This classic French bistro sandwich is a great way to use up leftover ham. YUMMY FRENCH DELISH
