Another word for grilled cheese?

I remember hearing another (fancier!) word for a grilled cheese sandwich on a cooking show. I think that it was a French sounding word. It was Chef at Home with Micheal Smith but I can't remember the word. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Ah! That's the one! Thanks. I can use it to act pompous now!

That was on the "clean out the fridge" episode, wasn't it?

Isn't croque monsieur usually served on baguette and has ham as well as the cheese?

This reminds me of the "Royale with cheese"

My mom always used to call them "toasty cheese sammiches". Grilled cheese sounded upscale by comparison. If you called it Croque Monsieur, my dad would've turned his nose up at it for sure.

They usually have ham and cheese in them with a cheese sauce on the outside, then a trip to the broiler.

Much more than a grilled cheese.

I like them with crisp bacon and a ripe tomato slice inside.

In French, Grilled Cheese, translates to: fromage grillé

Which would actually be grilled cheese like Haloumi and not a Sammie

Put an egg on top, and it's a croque madame. There's a whole croque family of variations.
