Mini Croque Monsieur is the baby of the most delicious breakfast you will ever have, the big daddy Croque Monsieur.

I saw this Mini Croque Monsieur on Pinterest. I thought it was such a clever idea for a filling exam snack. Yes, I have two teens writing now. I also had a little more than a cup leftover bechamel sauce from my Classic Lasagna from last week. I also had the last of my St.Dairy Natural Soft Cheese left and thought the nutty flavor of the cheese will work wonders for this old classic.

Be warned though, this is extremely rich and not recommended on any diet you might be on. Oh my gosh, it is so delicious. It can even work as a quick lunch of dinner with a fresh green salad.

The secrets to this dish are: The cheese, the smokey ham, the buttery bechamel and last but not least the grating of fresh nutmeg on the top.
