Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    These are good, basic instructions for a croque monsieur. I used hefezopf bread, which worked well. Surprisingly, the kids weren't into the ham. Maybe they'd like it better if I use prosciutto instead.
