Idea for a quick dinner: the recipe for goat cheese and honey croque-monsieur: Femme Actuelle Le MAG

Who doesn’t like croque-monsieur? There is nothing simpler and more delicious. Thick, delicately toasted slices of bread, plenty of melted cheese… It’s the ultimate comfort food. No matter how old we are, we are always happy when there is a croque-monsieur on the menu.

You can do it in the traditional way with Emmental cheese and one or more slices of white ham or give free rein to your imagination (and your sweet tooth) by twisting somewhat the recipe. Lovers of good French cuisine prefer the country croque-monsieur with Saint-Nectaire or the Savoyard with Reblochon and bacon. No matter how you choose to revisit it, one rule remains: a good dose of cheese. And for his version, the food influencer nicknamed Seizemay on TikTok chose to make a goat and crumb croque monsieurL. Here again, no doubt, the whole family will enjoy.

A very simple recipe but still so delicious

No need to rack your brains for hours or spend the entire evening behind the stove to prepare something that will please everyone. A simple honey goat cheese croque monsieur will be enough to satisfy the taste buds of the whole household. It’s the key to happiness and the culinary content creator known as Seizemay reveals all the secrets to us in a video recently posted on his TikTok account. Even if it is a slightly improved version, it is still super easy and tasty.

The list of ingredients for 1 person

  • 2 tablespoons of thick crème fraîche
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh goat cheese
  • 1 pinch of thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 slices of sandwich bread
  • 2 slices of white ham
  • 1/3 goat cheese log
  • 2 handfuls of grated mozzarella
  • salt and pepper

The steps of the recipe:

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons of heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of fresh goat cheese. Season with a pinch of thyme, salt and a few turns of pepper. Add a tablespoon of honey and mix until you obtain a homogeneous texture.
  3. Spread your cheese-cream mixture on each slice of bread. Place a first slice of ham on one of the buns. Cut 4 small slices from a goat cheese log and place them in the center of your croque-monsieur. Cover them with a second slice of ham then close with the second bread. Feel free to flatten a little with your hands.
  4. Brush the top of your croque monsieur with a tablespoon of your cream-cheese mixture and sprinkle everything with grated mozzarella. Finish by placing 2 thin slices of goat cheese log.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes at 180°C. Once out of the oven, you can add a little drizzle of honey if you are very greedy.

What is the best cheese for croque monsieur?

There isn’t really a best cheese for croque-monsieur, it mostly depends on individual tastes. If you like gruyere, use some, but if you prefer brie, this will work just as well. On the other hand, we tend to favor cheeses which when cooked become stringy like mozzarella and Emmental. We also prefer cheeses that have a temperature that is not too high so that they are very melty when they come out of the oven.
