Not to forget the lovely croque-monsieur, which roughly translates to "crunchy mister" or "sweaty Breville slab-baby".

Croque monsieur is an excellent suggestion, along with his wife croque madame.

Reading up on the origins of the dish, it appears it was first recorded in written use in volume two of Proust's 'À la recherche du temps perdu'. How extraordinarily French.

I believe it was Proust who also introduced the world to the Corby trouser press and the Rap'Tou.

And who can forget the contribution of Arthur Rimbaud, who famously popularised Mini Cheddars during his later period?
