Playing around with my croque monsieur



I bought a little extra hot mexicana cheese today and thought I’d try it out with prosciutto and a garlic vinaigrette as a variation on my croque monsieur. The vinaigrette has to be quite pungent to stand up to the cheese full of chillies, but it went well. I would probably melt the cheese next time as I did with the goat’s cheese, and shape it so it looks a little less childish. Or I might shave them into the shape of carrots and have parsley sticking out the end… But this was a lovely snack. The bright red dots are sweet chilli chutney.
