Croque-Monsieur is a grilled cheese & ham sandwich. Croque-Madame the same with an added fried egg on top. I have been loving a Croque-Carol to take advantage of tender Spring asparagus.



Steam fresh asparagus spears. Chill. When ready to cook, bring to room temperature. Can use a few for each sandwich.

Place a piece of 7-grain bread in a metal pie pan. Add thin slices of mild cheddar cheese and top with the fresh asparagus spears. Place under a broiler until crust is crispy and cheese is melted. Cut into squares.

A perfect lunch with a lemon fizz – lemon juice & sparkling water.

No need for ham. But you could.
