Brie Croque Monsieur

I am a sucker for a fancy grilled cheese. This one was really tasty and one that I will make again. I really liked that the whole sandwich is dipped a la French toast style, making it oh so decadent. Yum!

Brie Croque Monsieur
Adapted from: Framed Cooks blog

1 wedge (8 oz.) Brie cheese, cut into thin slices
3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
6 slices prosciutto de Parma
8 slices French bread, sliced thick
4 tbsp butter, melted, divided

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk salt and pepper. Set aside.

Assemble six sandwiches, each with some prosciutto and slices of cheese between two slices of bread.

Heat half of the melted butter in a large nonstick pan on medium heat, swirling to coat bottom of pan.

Dip the sandwiches into the egg and milk mixture, turning to coat. Immediately place in preheated pan, and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melting. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Serve hot.

The Result:
So delish! You really cannot see the cheese from the photo, but it's in there! This was pretty quick to assemble and a total hit at my house. Hooray for fancy grilled cheese...or in this case fancy grilled ham and cheese!
