Last week a blog reader sent me a recipe for Asparagus Croque Monsieurs. I had everything I needed to make them but didn’t have Gruyere cheese. I knew I was placing a grocery order last night but wouldn’t you know it . . the little store where I placed my order didn’t have Gruyere cheese either.
Since I never follow directions anyway, I figured I’d just sub pepper jack for the sauce and use Swiss for the top.
Mine aren’t so pretty because after the final time under the broiler, I decided they needed more cheese sauce so I spooned a bit more over them.
I used the black bread (with the coffee grounds), the homemade spicy mustard, the different cheeses and everything else was the same . . hmmm . . that’s only the asparagus and prosciutto that I didn’t change but they were super good. I had leftover cheese sauce so I can make these again soon.
