Croque-Monsieur Breakfast Casserole image

This French classic needs little introduction, but if you haven't had it in baked form, you're in for a treat. Think upscale ham sandwiches drenched in egg custard and cheese, melted to a deep golden-brown. There are no tricks here, save for the addition of two extra yolks for maximum French-toast tenderness. Serve it warm, or at room temperature - a fitting breakfast feast that's welcome any time of the day.

Time 1h

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan
1 (10- to 12-ounce) day-old or stale baguette, sliced 1/2 inches thick
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 ounces French-style or thin-sliced deli ham
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups half-and-half or heavy cream
4 large eggs
2 egg yolks
Freshly ground black pepper
3 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
1 ounce finely grated Parmesan cheese (packed 1/4 cup)
Parsley, leaves torn, mustard, and cornichons, for serving (optional)


  • Heat oven to 325 degrees and generously butter a 9-by-13-inch (or 1 1/2- to 2-quart) baking pan. Butter the slices of bread on one side and spread a thin layer of mustard on the other side. Arrange, shingled, over the bottom of the pan, buttered side up; you may not need all the bread. Drape evenly with ham.
  • Whisk together milk, half-and-half, egg, egg yolks and pepper. Pour evenly over the bread and ham. Sprinkle with Gruyère and Parmesan cheeses, allowing the ham to peek out in places. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes (for the bread to sop up the milk) or up to overnight. Bake until the custard is set, and the bread and cheese are golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to set 20 minutes before scattering evenly with parsley. Scoop and serve warm or at room temperature, with mustard and cornichons.

The Ultimate Croque Monsieur - Baked French Bistro Sandwich image

This is a superb ham and cheese French bistro sandwich slathered in a delightful Bechamel-Soubise cheese sauce that's spiked with pastis, and baked to golden perfection! For a "Croque Madame" variation, serve with a fried or poached egg on top (the egg resembles a ladies hat). Serve hot, garnished with a thyme sprig and a tart little Cornichon pickle on the side, and a drizzle of my violet mustard recipe #400926. Heavenly! Inspired by the Croque Monsieurs served at the famous Tartine's Bakery & Cafe located in San Francisco, California.
