This was the first canapé my Mother taught me to make at about age 10. Very simple to make, takes only minutes, and will disappear quickly, so save one for the Chef!
On a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon I looked high and low in my refrigerator for something to make for lunch that would bring joy to my heart and stomach on such a drizzly, overcast, and not-so-good day. Couldn’t find lefovers, didn’t want to get out the pots and pans and construct something from scratch, and there lo and behold hiding behind a fat jar of dill pickle spears was a lonely package of sliced ham. Scouting around the “cheese drawer” I found a block of cheese leftover from making Fondue the previous week. OMG, stuff to make a Croque Monsieur – so here we go!
