I love a good movie. I love a movie even more if it includes Meryl Streep. Just love her. How can you go wrong with one of her movies?
I have watched her in the movie It’s Complicated more times than I can count. I just love it. Her and Alec Baldwin are hilarious together. Now if you haven’t seen it rent it ASAP. I even have it downloaded on my phone so I can watch it if I get bored on a plane or car ride or I just want to watch it in bed at night. I know I’m weird. But sometimes, okay most of the time, JJ is watching some awful show upstairs and Loganne is downstairs. There really is no other option. So I watch a movie and knit. What’s more fun than that!
Now in this movie she is a brilliant cook. This is what draws me to this movie besides the humor aspect. I just love movies about cooking.
I have wanted to make the Croque Monseir ever since I saw her cook it. I had no idea what it was, I just knew it came out of the oven smothered in cheese.
Basically it is a fancy ham and cheese sandwich that you will hug yourself after making!!! I found a recipe by Ina Garten. It includes a cheese sauce that will allow you to make about 6 sandwiches. Maybe even one or two more. Trust me you will want to!
Give this recipe a try soon. You will thank me.
I added roasted Parmesan and garlic potatoes.
