Tomato Croque Monsieur

By Nadia Aidi
Tomato #CroqueMonsieur (ish) adjacent sandwich…OBVIOUSLY non traditional lol but it was the inspiration behind…the croque is my favorite but felt like some tomato on it 😂 so then the whole thing unraveled…

Ingredients 

  • 2 tbsp good butter
  • 1 1/4 tbsp flour
  • 2.5 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cup warmed up milk, you can add 1/4 cup more if it’s too thick but I kinda wanted it thick
  • 1 tbsp salsa macha
  • Basil leaves to taste
  • 2 tbsp chives
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 8 oz shredded gruyère or to taste really
  • 6 oz mozzarella, grated
  • 4 oz grated parm to taste
  • 8 slices thick bread
  • 4-8 slices prosciutto

Directions 

  • Melt your butter and add the flour. Cook it together for about 2-3 minutes on medium low to cook out the flavor of the flour. Add in tomato paste and cook 2-3 minutes
  • Whisk in your warmed up milk slowly and let it thicken, about 5 min on medium low. Add in garlic powder and some chives. Finish off with salsa macha
  • Divide 1/2 of the tomato bechamel on 4 slices of the bread. Add 1/2 mozzarella on top of the sauce
  • Add 1-2 prosciutto slices to 4 slices of bread atop the mozz and top it with 1/2 the gruyere. Add basil leaves
  • Top with the bread, spread the remaining tomato bechamel on the bread
  • Add remaining cheese on top of the sandwiches, add some parm and bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes and broil 1-2 minutes or until cheese is golden
