Croque Monsieur-Style Waffles

Ingredients

    Béchamel

  • 1/4 cup (55 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (500 ml) milk
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper

    Waffles and Topping

  • 4 Corn Flour and Cheddar Waffles (see recipe below)
  • 5 oz (150 g) ham slices
  • 3/4 lb (340 g) trimmed asparagus, blanched
  • 1 cup (100 g) grated sharp cheddar cheese

Preparation

Béchamel

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and continue cooking for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the milk and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Gently simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Waffles and Topping

  1. With the rack in the highest position, preheat the oven’s broiler. Line one baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Place the waffles on the sheet. Top with the ham, folding the slices if needed. Top with the asparagus and the béchamel sauce. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  3. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is lightly golden brown.
