Croque Monsieur

I happened into this one night when I was looking for a late snack. It may not be for Ella to eat (because of the egg) but Gabe and I sure enjoyed it!

2 Slices Wheat/Gluten-Free Bread (my favorite right now is Whole Foods' 365 Gluten Free Sandwich Mix)
2 thick slices of good quality ham
2 slices of Swiss or Gruyere cheese (large enough to cover bread slice)
2-4 large eggs (depending how many you want on your sandwich)
unsalted butter

Preheat Oven Broiler to high setting.

Preheat an oven proof skillet, over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and fry eggs to desired doneness, making sure to keep them separate from one another. Season with salt and pepper and remove from pan. Butter one side of each of the bread slices. Place buttered side in pan. Top with cooked egg(s), 1 slice of ham per slice of bread, and top with cheese. Allow cheese to get slightly melted. Check to make sure bread is crispy and golden brown. Remove from range and put into pre-heated oven. Broil for approx. 3 minutes or until cheese starts to get brown and bubbly. Serve with favorite brown mustard. Enter Nirvana!

Serves 2
