Imagine this - buttery croissant, thinly sliced ham, shredded Gruyere cheese (creamy Swiss), then smothered in a creamy Gruyere cheese sauce, warmed, and toasted to perfection! Add a fried egg if you want, and serve with avocado slices. It literally melts in your mouth. One of my favorite sandwiches of all time!

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
