Croque Monsieur

Active Time: 15 minutes • Total Time: 20 minutes • Serves: 4

4 (3/4-inch-thick slices) Schnucks split top or Vienna bread
2 tablespoons Schnucks Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon (optional)
12 ounces Deli sliced Schnucks Select hickory smoked ham
8 slices Schnucks Swiss cheese
1 cup jarred or refrigerated Alfredo sauce

1. Place oven rack about 6 inches from source of broiler heat. Preheat broiler. Place bread in single layer on rimmed baking pan and broil 1 to 2 minutes, watching carefully, or until lightly browned on both sides, turning once halfway through broiling. Or, place bread in wide-slot toaster to toast.

2. In small bowl, combine mustard and tarragon, if using. Spread 1 side of each slice of toasted bread with mustard. Arrange ham evenly over mustard, then top each sandwich with 2 slices cheese. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese bubbles.

3. Meanwhile, pour sauce into small microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave oven on high 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until heated through, stirring once.

4. Transfer sandwiches to cutting board and cut diagonally in half. Place 2 halves on each of 4 plates. Spoon 1/4 cup sauce over each sandwich to serve.
