Croque Monsieur is not a simple toast sandwich, but the ultimate Sandwich!!! It’s easy to cook it and ideal for brunch or dinner with a green salad!

And the best gluten-free Croque Monsieur is made with the most delicious bread for me Schär’s Pane Casereccio.

While for the best béchamel I’ll tell you my secret: I add baking powder along with the flour and thats gives a little more volume and becomes lighter. I also show you the easiest method and at the same time successful version of my béchamel. You will love it!!! And the best flour for béchamel is Schär’s Mix it Farina.

Gluten Free Croque Monsieur – the Ultimate Sandwich!
  • For spreading the bread, if you want, use dijon mustard only.
  • For more flavor you can spread each slice with a spoonful of cow’s butter. It will give more flavor but also more calories. And as the French say, there are 3 ingredients for a good recipe: butter, butter & butter

Good Luck and Bon Appétit!!!
