Croque-monsieur

The croque-monsieur is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich topped with béchamel. It originated in French cafés and bars as a quick snack. Typically, Emmental or Gruyère cheese is used. The name is based on the verb croquer and the word monsieur. The sandwich's first recorded appearance on a Parisian café menu was in 1910. Its earliest mention in literature appears to be in volume two of Proust's In Search of Lost Time in 1918. ... more on Wikipedia
