Fantastic along with some soup on a winter night


1 tablespoon Dijon mustard; whole grain
1 tablespoon Mayonnaise; fat free
8 (1 oz) slices Italian bread
6 ounces Ham; thinly sliced
1 cup Gruyere; shredded
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
1/2 cup Egg; or egg substitute
1/4 cup Milk; fat free

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Combine mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Spread 3/4 teaspoon of the mustard/mayonnaise mixture over four bread slices; layer each slice with 1 1/2 ounces ham and 1/4 cup cheese. Sprinkle evenly with pepper. Spread 3/4 teaspoon of the mustard/mayonnaise mixture over each remaining bread slice and place on top of the rest to create the sandwich.

2. Combine egg substitute and fat-free milk in a shallow dish. Dip both sides of each sandwich into the egg mixture.

3. Heat a large non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sandwiches to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and cheese melts.


I prefer it with less mustard, but my husband likes it as-is.

This is a croque monsieur, which contain ham, cheese and mustard. A monte cristo contains turkey and ham, cheese and a sweet fruit spread.

Also, this is not a Croque Monsieur. It's a Monte Cristo.

I liked this recipe but I put a little more horse radish in it, it woke it up a little more, thank you. Rev. Ken James Gertner

I used my home-made mayo, creole mustard and this sandwich was fantastic! Great recipe!

I really like this sandwich. The only variance was I didn't bother premixing the mustard and mayo.
