Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients for 2 people

4 slices of bread

4 slices of prosciutto ham

2 large balls of mozzarella

200 ml of cream

100 g of grated parmesan

3 eggs

300 ml of semi-skimmed milk

100 g of plain flour


olive oil

salt and pepper

Step 1/4

Spread olive oil on each slice of bread, cut the mozzarella into slices, and place 2 mozzarella slices, 2 prosciutto ham slices, and 1 basil leaf on 2 of the slices of oiled bread. Add salt and pepper and close the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices.

Step 2/4

Dip the sandwich in milk, flour and then beaten eggs, then fry in a pan for a few minutes on each side over a medium heat.

Step 3/4

Cut 2 pieces of clingfilm and place a sandwich on each piece, then close the clingfilm and twist to form 2 balls. Let that chill for 10 minutes in the fridge. Meanwhile, make a cheese sauce by heating cream and grated parmesan over a low heat.

Step 4/4

Take the sandwich balls out the fridge, remove the clingfilm, and place them in an oven dish and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C. Serve the croque-monsieurs straight from the oven with the parmesan cream sauce, and enjoy.
