Easy peasy recipe for Smoked Beef Croque Monsieur

125ml milk
5g thyme
15g SASKO Cake Flour
15g butter
50g Emmental cheese, grated
50g Mascarpone cheese
5 ml Dijon mustard
Salt and Pepper
100g sliced smoked beef
8 slices SASKO Low GI Whole-Wheat Bread
150g Emmental cheese
80 g butter

How to
Place milk and thyme into a saucepan and scald. Allow to infuse for 10-15min.

In a separate saucepan, melt butter over a low heat. Remove from heat and add flour. Stir until a thick paste is formed. Return to heat and cook for 2-3 min. Slowly add infused milk, stirring all the time. Do not allow lumps to form.

Once all milk has been added, bring to the boil, stirring continuously. Cook for 2-3min. Add grated Emmental cheese, mascarpone and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

To make the sandwiches, spread the cooled cheese béchamel evenly onto 4 slices of bread. Top with sliced smoked beef and the remaining Emmental cheese.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan and fry the sandwiches until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Cut into finger size pieces and serve warm.
