Preheat the oven to 450°F. Shred the Gruyère cheese, reserving half for later. In a small bowl, mix together the crème fraîche, grated parmesan, salt, pepper & half the Gruyère.
Butter the bread slices on one side.
Grease a baking dish.
Lay half the bread slices in the baking dish, butter-side up.
Tear the slices of ham in half. Arrange half the ham over the buttered bread. Sprinkle with the remaining shredded Gruyère. Top with the rest of the ham.
Close the sandwiches with slices of bread, butter-side down. Generously spread the creamy cheese mixture over top the sandwiches.
Bake in the oven for 5-10 min at 450°F, or until golden brown & melty.
Serve with a bed of salad greens dressed to your liking. Bon appétit!
