2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for toasting bread in the pan

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup warm milk

1 pinch nutmeg

 

Sandwich

4 thick slices white bread

Dijon mustard, for spreading

113g Dewfresh Ham

113g gruyere cheese, sliced

32g gruyere cheese, shredded

Method

Béchamel Sauce

In a small heavy bottomed pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once it starts to bubble and foam add the flour and whisk for another 30 seconds, stirring continuously. Add the warm milk and stir until smooth.

 

Sandwich

  1. Spread the Dijon on one side of each piece of bread. Top 2 pieces of bread with even amounts of the Dewfresh ham and cheese. Then place the other two pieces of bread on top to make the sandwiches.
  2. In a large pan melt another tablespoon of butter. Add each sandwich and lightly brown on both sides.
  3. Place the sandwiches on a sheet pan and top with the béchamel sauce. Top each with the grated Gruyere and place under the broiler until golden brown and bubbly.
