Croque-monsieur - Gastronomy, holidays & weekends guide in Paris

Thecroque-monsieur is decidedly the king of Parisbistrots.Originating in 1910 in a café on the Boulevard des Capucines, in the French capital, the recipe has not changed an ounce! However, there are several variations on the original, such as the croque-madame, which has an egg on top, Hawaian, withpineapple, sweet with a famous chocolate spread, or with a béchamel sauce.

It is a sandwich which is served hot, composed of a slice of Paris ham and slivers of Gruyèrecheese between two buttered slices of a sandwich loaf. To obtain a crusty, melting croque-monsieur, it is then toasted in the oven or in a frying pan.
