Sweet Potato Butter Croque Monsieur Recipe

Sweet Potato Butter Croque Monsieur 2

I know, I know…if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. But I was in the mood to embrace my french roots and celebrate the fall season. 

Sweet Potato Butter, makes this fancy french grilled cheese even more speciale. It adds just a touch of sweet warmth to pairs perfectly with the salty jambon and nutty fromage. As a plus, replacing Béchamel Sauce with the sweet potato butter cuts down the cook time drastically. If you’re feeling particularly simple, you can make a plain grilled cheese with Kraft Singles, just don’t forget the special ingredient! Mashed sweet potato with a drizzle of maple syrup will substitute the sweet potato butter beautifully. 

Joyeux automne!
