Here is a bluffing recipe for kitchen dummies that will cost them just a few euros... so whip up an upscale croque-monsieur sandwich that will surely impress the man in your life using just a small jar of truffle breakings (count 20€) to pick up in fine grocery stores (Maison de la Truffe, Labeyrie, Julhès as well as on www.gourmandisedeluxe.com
Butter a slice of bread and generously spread with truffle breakings. Then pile up thin slices of comté cheese + a slice of thinly sliced ham. Cover up with a slice of buttered bread.
Here is how to prepare your 4 croque-monsieur sandwiches.
Heat a nut of butter in a pan.
Cook the croque-monsieurs 2 by 2 on an average flame (about 3 min on each side), until both sides are nice and golden with cheese well melted.
Then delicately cut each croque-monsieur in two.
Serve on a plate with a small salad. To be enjoyed preferably with a bottle of bubbles!
