  • 2 tbs unsalted butter
  • 2 tbs all-purpose flour
  • 1 c whole milk
  • 1 ½ tbs Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 12 slices Pepperidge Farm very thin white bread
  • 6 oz chopped deli ham
  • 5 oz shredded Gruyère cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.
  • Cut very thin bread in half diagonally and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Toast the bread in the oven for about 10 minutes, just to dry it out. Then remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Increase oven temperature to 400°F.

To make the Dijon béchamel sauce

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter.
  • Whisk in the all-purpose flour to make a roux.
  • Whisk in the milk and continue whisking until the sauce has thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the Dijon mustard, Kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper.

To assemble the Croque Monsieur Toast Points

  • Spread about 1 ½ teaspoons of the Dijon béchamel sauce on each piece of toasted bread.
  • Then add about 1 ½ teaspoons of chopped or shaved ham on top of the Dijon béchamel sauce, spreading the ham to evenly cover the whole surface.
  • Next top with about 2 teaspoons of shredded Gruyère cheese, spreading the cheese to evenly cover the whole surface.
  • Bake in a 400°F oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot, with a side of the remaining Dijon béchamel sauce for dipping.
  • Yield 24 servings.
