This traditional French Croque Monsieur sandwich had a transformation by using flaky puff pastry filled with creamy Béchamel which balances the saltiness of the air cured Italian prosciutto, and the creaminess of the Gruyere cheese. We enhanced this recipe with our Honey Pumpkin Mustard which adds and sweet and tanginess to this dish. This recipe was inspired by "Cooking for Keeps's" blog
