Spring in Paris and a Croque Monsieur at a terrace

Today, suddenly, winter was over and we enjoyed sun and warmth. My boys were in T shirts playing and rollerskating in the park close to our apartment. You just felt like not going back inside. Therefore, we made a big decision: let's have lunch at the Café around the corner and let's have a Croque Monsieur ! My boys loved it!
Actually, it's very simple, if you don't have a Café around the corner to make it for you : you just need for a simple Croque Monsieur, hard cheese, cooked ham, butter and sliced sandwich bread.
Take a slice of bread and spread a bit of butter on one side, then put a slice of ham and a slice of cheese, another slice of bread with butter again; the butter should be outside the sandwich. Then cook it in the oven (350F) or in pan for 10 min until nicely brown.
For a change, put a fried egg on top and it's a Croque Madame... my son thinks it's nicer, so it must be a "Madame" ; you can also add grated parmesan on top, and even bechamel (see my post of April 2010 on asparagus) and grated parmesan on top.
Just enjoy with a green salad and an apple as a dessert for a balanced meal.
