    Serves: 4 

    • 8 slices wholemeal or wholegrain bread

    1. Preheat your oven to 110 C / Gas 1/4.
    2. Preheat your panini press. If you don't own one, use a non adhesive skillet and a cast iron grill press.
    3. Spread the bread slices with creme fraiche. Cut the ham in four equal squares and place one on four of the bread slices.
    4. Cut the camembert lengthwise so that you have at least 12 slices total, 3 for each croque. Place the cornichons on top.
    5. Top each croque with a second slice of bread with the creme fraiche spread towards the inside.
    6. Place 2 croques at a time in the panini press or the pan and heat for 2 minutes. Then transfer to the baking tray, cover with aluminium foil and place in the preheated oven to keep them warm.
    7. Prepare the two other croques the same way.
    8. Serve on their own or with a green salad on the side.
