Crostini Monsieur Recipe

What is a crostini monsieur, you ask? Well, it's something we devised to go with the delicious wine stewed chicken we made last week. This is a savoury sort of French toast concoction inspired by a croque monsieur sandwich. We made a savoury egg mixture to soak some day-old bread in, fried it up, and then broiled it with some excellent cheese on top. It made an amazing side dish to go with the stew, and was easy to bring back from leftover with a little time in the toaster oven.

You can adjust the flavour profile to match whatever you're cooking. We used thyme because the stew had a lot of thyme in it. If you're going to use garlic, shallot, or onion, it does help to grate it so that the flavour can really penetrate the whole egg mixture. Of course you can top it with whatever kind of cheese works best for you, but we recommend a good dry hard cheese like parmesan, Beemster XO, Mountain Oak, taleggio, or a nice aged gruyere like Compte.

1. This looks amazing

I make my own bread so have plenty to work with but must obtain some hard cheese.

2. They're super tasty.

They're not really crispy because they're egg-soaked, like French Toast, but you can definitely get the cheese on top crispy. They're tasty and go very well with rich and hearty stew-y dishes.
