Bacon and Onion Croque Monsieur
This recipe disproves the saying that there can be too much of a good thing. A Croque Monsieur is essentially a grilled cheese that’s stuffed with creamy béchamel sauce and topped with melted cheese. Here, you’ll take it up a notch with crispy bacon and rings of red onion to balance the richness (plus, they just look cool, too). Pair these sandwiches with peppery greens tossed with a bracing mustard vinaigrette to round out the meal, or do as the French do and turn it into a Croque Madame by topping this decadent sandwich with a fried egg.
