2: Lunch | Ingredients * 1 cup water * 2 1/2 cups bread flour * 1 tablespoon white sugar * 1 teaspoon salt * 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast * 1 egg yolk * 1 tablespoon water Directions 1. Place 1 cup water, bread flour, sugar, salt and yeast into bread machine pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select Dough cycle, and press Start. 2. When the cycle has completed, place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat all sides. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in bulk. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched. 3. Punch down dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll into a 16x12 inch rectangle. Cut dough in half, creating two 8x12 inch rectangles. Roll up each half of dough tightly, beginning at 12 inch side, pounding out any air bubbles as you go. Roll gently back and forth to taper end. Place 3 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Make deep diagonal slashes across loaves every 2 inches, or make one lengthwise slash on each loaf. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes, or until doubled in bulk. 4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Mix egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water; brush over tops of loaves. 5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. | Baguette

3: Ingredients * 2 Tbsp butter * 2 Tbsp flour * 1 1/2 cups milk * A pinch each of salt, freshly ground pepper, nutmeg, or more to tast * 6 ounces Gruyre cheese, grated (about 1 1/2 cups grated) * 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (packed)* 8 slices of French or Italian loaf bread * 12 ounces ham, sliced* Dijon mustard Method 1 Preheat oven to 400F. 2 Make the béchamel sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium/low heat until it just starts to bubble. Add the flour and cook, stirring until smooth, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the milk, whisking continuously, cooking until thick. Remove from heat. Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in the Parmesan and 1/4 cup of the grated Gruyre. Set aside. 3 Lay out the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven, a few minutes each side, until lightly toasted. For extra flavor you can spread some butter on the bread slices before you toast them if you want. (Alternatively, you can assemble the sandwiches as follows in step four and grill them on a skillet, finishing them in the broiler with the bechamel sauce.) 4 Lightly brush half of the toasted slices with mustard. Add the ham slices and about 1 cup of the remaining Gruyre cheese. Top with the other toasted bread slices. 5 Spoon on the béchamel sauce to the tops of the sandwiches. Sprinkle with the remaining Gruyre cheese. Place on a broiling pan. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then turn on the broiler and broil for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until the cheese topping is bubbly and lightly browned. If you top this sandwich with a fried egg it becomes a Croque Madame. Makes 4 sandwiches. | Le fromage du bacon
