Info
This sandwich has its roots in a classic French sandwich made with lean ham, cheese & a thick cheese sauce. The panini receives Dijon mustard, Gruyére cheese, black forrest ham, chives and some more cheese on top. The cheese sauce uses butter, flour, Dijon mustard, nutmeg, salt, pepper and whole milk. After the sauce thickens and boils, Gruyere cheese is added to finish it off. After the sandwich is grilled, the cheese sauce is applied to the top and it is placed in the broiler to finish. The sandwich was very rich and was a great mix of flavors.
