  • Summary

    At San Francisco's famed Tartine Bakery, croque-monsieur is one of the most popular menu items. Croque-montagnarde, another crowd-pleaser, is a richer, more robust version, thanks to potatoes laced with olive oil. Recipe and image reprinted with permission from "Tartine Bread," by Chad Robertson, with photographs by Eric Wolfinger.
