SERVES 4

 

INGREDIENTS

8 slices Fraternité Grand Campagne
100g Dijon mustard
600g leg ham, shaved or sliced
200g mozzarella, grated
200g Gruyere* grated
200g butter
*or similar, e.g. cheddar
 

METHOD

1 Spread mustard evenly on all slices.
2 Top four slices with ham, mozzarella and ½ the Gruyere and close each sandwich with the other slices of bread.
3 Heat a large non-stick pan over med-high heat, add 50g of butter and allow to foam.
4 Take one sandwich at a time and fry until golden on each side, pressing gently with a spatula during the process.
5 When golden both sides remove and top with a little more Gruyere.
6 Repeat the process to create a gooey melted outer cheese crust. You could put this under the grill to achieve the gooey top, if you prefer.
