Mondays are going to happen whether we like them or not. Here’s a traditional Croque Madame to help ease the pain.
It’s an all-time favourite of mine and it’s pretty simple. Just dab two teaspoons of Dijon on two freshly baked slices of bread. Next place 2 slices of ham (or you can substitute it with some turkey) on one slice and top it off with a generous amount of shredded or sliced Gruyere cheese. Place in oven on low heat until bread is golden and cheese is melted. Next stack one of the slices atop the other. In a skillet, fry an egg sunny side up but keep it slightly runny. In a separate pot prepare some Béchamel sauce, I tend to use the just add milk Maggie powder mix. Place the egg over the two slices of with two teaspoons of the sauce and enjoy your Croque Madame!
