Want to cook a super comforting dish? François-Régis Gaudry invites you to make a super cheezy croque-monsieur. And believe us, it’s worth tasting!

After the onion gratin, the Gado Gado salad or even the caramelized garlic tart, François-Régis Gaudry, the famous culinary columnist of the show “On va goûter” on France Inter, tackles a new world-famous recipe: croque monsieur.

We find this preparation, born in the French capital between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, in his latest book “We’re going to taste Paris” published by Marabout and Radio France. An easy to make and very tasty dish offered by chef Suzy Palatin, who herself inspired by a recipe by Gaston Lenôtre.

ONE version without béchamel, with fresh cream and cheese. But beware, not just any: from the county for a super cheezy result and extremely comforting. A good idea for a dish to make after the annual party to please both young and old. So if this has whetted your appetite, roll up your sleeves and put on your apron !
