Lobster Croque Monsieur


A Note from Feedfeed

As far as quintessential Boston experiences go, indulging in a lobster dish ranks pretty high. Using Land O Lakes® Deli American, I am creating a Lobster Croque Monsieur, inspired by Boston and New England's love for lobster. This Deli American is the perfect versatile sandwich ingredient: it's creaminess and meltability definitely make for a delicious Lobster Croque Monsieur.
