Brie Croque Monsieur Sandwiches

I am a huge fan of Croque Monsieur. I had one most meals when I was in France, and then I found this one at http://www.framedcooks.com/2011/03/brie-croque-monsieur-sandwiches-2.html It sounds to die for and I can’t wait to try it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 9 oz. Brie or D’Affinois cheese, cut into 12 thin slices
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Pepper
  • 6 slices thin sliced ham
  • 12 slices white bread
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, divided

DIRECTIONS

  2. Assemble six sandwiches, each with one slice of ham and two slices of cheese between two slices of bread. Cut each sandwich into quarters.
