You will absolutely love this alternative, mouthwatering croque monsieur… It’s sweet, not salty, and makes the best breakfast ever…
Serves: 4 Preparation: 20′ Cooks in: 10′ Ready in: 30′
8 slices white bread for toasting
2 pears, peeled, cored, finely sliced
100gr dark chocolate, in pieces
butter for frying
smooth peanut butter
For the batter:
1½ tbsp sugar white or brown
Spread peanut butter on one side of all eight bread slices. Divide pear slices and then chocolate pieces over the four bread slices. Top with the other four.
Mix well all batter ingredients. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat and melt a little butter.
Dip the first toast in the batter and cook until golden brown on both sides and chocolate melts, about 3-5 minutes per side. Repeat with the rest of the toasts melting a little more butter every time.
Arrange them on a serving platter, cut in the middle, sprinkle with a little icing sugar or crushed, toasted peanuts if you wish and serve right away.
