Almost Croque Monsieur

I know there hasn’t been much activity lately, and I also know I haven’t cooked too much lately. But if there is one thing I do and enjoy, that thing would be eating. This past Sunday, I had been watching Barefoot Contessa making croques monsieur and realized that I had pretty close to the right ingredients. The night before, I had made some fromage fort, and AB had made garlic bread… I’m sure you can see where this is heading.

The first step was carving off a sizeable (sandwich-size) chunk of garlic bread, and applying the fromage fort.

Obviously, for a ham and cheese sandwich, the ham is necessary (I also threw in a layer of swiss, because the ham seemed lonely)

Next, I slapped the sammy together and placed it in a pan. (I smushed it down a little bit to try and get it to stick together)

I baked it for about 10 minutes, sprinkled some mozzarella on the top, and shmelted that slightly.

And then, I ate it.
