法式温热三明治 ~ Croque-monsieur







 
Croque-monsieur 是法国传统的温热三明治。用奶油煎至外表焦酥,香气十足,内层欲是软嫩的。一口咬下去,浓软的起司流出,咸香可口。从里到外都是温热的,吃起来特别暖胃。Croque-monsieur的基本食材是火腿和起司。Monsieur 直接翻译是先生。只要在三明治上加一颗太阳蛋,就从先生变成了女士 – Croque-madam .

A croque-monsieur is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with béchamel sauce. It originated in French cafés and bars as a quick snack. Typically, Emmental or Gruyère cheese is used.  A croque-monsieur served with a fried egg or poached egg on top is known as a croque-madame. According to About.com the word croque comes from the verb croquer or “to crunch”. So a Croque-Monsieur roughly translates to “Mister Crunchy”.
