Croque monsieur

  1. For the béchamel, melt the butter in a saucepan on medium-high heat, induction setting 7. Add the flour and cook the mixture so a blonde roux is achieved.
  2. Whisk in the milk, ensuring there are no lumps, and then bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to induction setting 3. Add the whole grain mustard, season, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring continuously until sauce thickens and becomes smooth. Once cooked, place in a container and set aside.
  3. Lay the bread slices on a chopping board and brush with melted butter on both sides.
  4. On one piece of bread, sprinkle with Gruyère, then top with ham and more Gruyère. Place the second piece of bread on top to make a sandwich.
  5. Spread sandwiches with Dijon mustard, to taste and approximately two tablespoons of béchamel and cover with a little more grated cheese. Continue to make as many sandwiches as you like.

Cuban sandwich

  1. Butter both sides of the bread and then spread one side of each slice with mustard.
  2. Lay slices of cheese on both slices of bread, then top with as much meat and pickles as you like. Make sure to have Swiss cheese next to the bread, encasing the other ingredients inside.

Reuben sandwich

  1. Butter both sides of the bread. On one slice, place layers of the corned beef. Top with Gruyère and then sauerkraut.
  2. Spread some of the Russian dressing onto the other piece of bread and place directly on top of the sauerkraut.
