Imagine all the flavours of a croque monsieur with none of the tedium of making and eating an actual sandwich. With our simple recipe you can get all that bechamel based deliciousness in a small dough ball. Simply:
  • 3 cups bechamel sauce
  • 1 cup grated emmental
  • 1 cup grated gruyere
  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp mustard (optional)
  • More emmental, for grating
  1. Mix the cheeses, ham, seasoning and mustard into the bechamel.
  2. Spread this into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid, roughly 3 hours.
  3. Pop them out of their tray and wrap each bechamel ice cube in a walnut sized ball of pizza dough.
  4. Lay them all quite close together on a baking sheet, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with grated emmental.
  5. Bake for 20 mins until they've grown in size and gone a lovely golden colour.
