Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 8 thick (1/2-inch/1 cm) slices multigrain bread
  • 4 slices Gruyère cheese
  • 4 thin slices ham
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Gruyère cheese
  • Béchamel:
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (125 mL) milk
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
Instructions
  1. Béchamel: In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, whisking, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in nutmeg, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Spread mustard over 4 of the bread slices; top each with 1 slice each Gruyère cheese and ham. Top with remaining bread. Brush butter over outsides of bread.
  3. Heat large ovenproof skillet over medium heat; brush with oil. Cook sandwiches until golden, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Pour béchamel onto sandwiches, without dripping down sides; sprinkle with shredded Gruyère cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and light golden, 2 to 4 minutes.
