Wholesome Wednesday: Cheese Monsieur

These sandwiches are an alternative to the modern grilled cheese.  The cheese sauce is similar to velveeta with a little bite to it.  And it’s really neat how the egg wash seals the gooey cheese into the sandwich.  I think this would be even better if you added a slice of ham before dipping it in the egg wash.

Cheese Monsieur
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt & cayenne

Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat.  Once melted add flour and whisk to make a roux.  Whisk constantly for 1 minute, then add milk whisking constantly.  Cook till thickened, then stir in grated cheese till melted.  Add seasoning and then set aside to cool. 

Make medium thick sandwiches with white bread, using the above mixture for the sandwich filling.  Make egg wash with milk (like for French toast).  Dip sandwiches and fry in butter till golden brown.  Serve while warm.
