Croque Monsieur,my way

When I was eating meat,I loved to have a Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame.This is my way of making them,loosely translated by watching Barefoot Contessa. I know a Monsieur doesn't normally have an egg but this is my way and it's good! For a Croque Madame,add the egg on top of the sandwich spoon over a bit of sauce& cheese to cover then broil.
