D is for Dinner - Art-Is-In's Croque Monsieur
Many in Ottawa have grown fond of the doughy delights created by Art-is-In bakery, and sold at grocery stores across the city. It'll soon be harder to get your hands on that bread. Art-is-In says it can no longer distribute wholesale, instead concentrating on the cafe side of the business. Stephanie and Kevin Mathieson are the people behind the bakery. They brought one of their concoctions in to studio. Alan Neal got a taste of their croque monsieur.
Art-is-In's Croque Monsieur Recipe:
2 slices of Kevin's white sourdough
2 oz of bechamel
4 slices of swiss gruyere cheese
100 grams of shredded gruyere
Spread one ounce of bechamel on each slice of bread. Add 2 slices of cheese each. Pile the ham on one side, then top with the other piece of bread. Layer the shredded gruyere on top, and bake until golden brown.
