This croque-monsieur egg roll recipe is a twist on croque-monsieur, a classic French grilled ham and cheese sandwich. The croque-monsieur egg roll has all the delicious flavors of ham, gruyere, and béchamel in an egg roll wrapper. Serve warm and crispy as the perfect appetizer or game time snack.
The first time I made these egg rolls I had to stop myself from being Meg Ryan in THAT scene from ‘When Harry Met Sally’. These are THAT good.
First up is the béchamel sauce. Now, béchamel sauce is one of the classic ‘mother sauces’ in classical cooking. Don’t let that intimidate you. It is just a few steps and people will think you are a rock star for making it. Totally worth it.

- 2 Tablespoon Butter
- 2 Tablespoon Flour
