Crunchy gooey French grilled cheese sandwich topped with an egg.
In Norway they have a saying “A loved child has many names”, I guess it goes for this dish also, Grilled cheese sandwiches are loved by many and eaten around the world. Who is to say what is the right or the wrong way to make this sandwich. For the traditional Crock Monsieur you need bread, preferably brioche, cooked ham and cheese, some also use bechamel sauce.
My version today is quite easy, I used brioche that I brought with me from MiniMe and my trip to Paris. I used Truffle Jack cheese, egg and I dropped the ham this time. If you scroll down, abow the last picture in this post there is a list of different crock sandwiches
For each sandwich I made I used:
2 slices of brioche(use any type of bread)
2 slices of truffle Jack(use your favoroite cheese)
A little lettuce and tomatoes for garnish and added nutrients.
Pre heat oven to 200 C
Toast the bread in a pan with a little butter, sandwiched the cheese between the bread.
Place the sandwich on a baking paper lined baking tray and put the sandwich in the middle of the oven. The sandwich is done as soon as the cheese has melted.
While the sandwich is baking fry the egg in a pan with a little butter on medium heat. As soon as it is done, place the egg on top of your sandwich and enjoy.
