The second April recipe was chosen by Kathy of All Food Considered. I have never tried making this famous French sandwich, so I was excited to try. You make a ham and cheese sandwich, then smother it in a cheesy white sauce top with more cheese, and broil it in the oven until it is crispy and brown on top. So delicious!
I cut the recipe in half, but other than that I think I followed this recipe without change. I bought my bread from Rick's breads, a local bakery here in Lancaster City. It is a regular white French loaf. I used Boar's head maple ham, and imported Gruyere cheese. And local, hormone free milk, as usual.
