Croque MonsieursCuisinart Original Recipe
4 slices firm white or wheat bread
1 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
2 thin slices smoked deli ham
2 thin slices deli turkey
2 slices Swiss, Cheddar or Gouda cheese (may use reduced fat)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk (whole, reduced fat, lowfat or fat free)
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter
Preheat Cuisinart™ Griddler™ fitted with the griddle plated in the closed griddle position to 375°F.
Divide and layer the ham, turkey, and cheese to make two sandwiches. Place the egg, milk, salt, and pepper to taste in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Dip the sandwiches into the egg and milk mixture and soak briefly to coat. Brush on both sides evenly with melted butter. Place sandwiches on bottom plate. Close Griddler™ and apply medium pressure for 10 seconds. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until bread is browned and crispy, and filling is warmed. Remove sandwiches using a heatproof plastic spatula and allow to rest for 3 to 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
