Croque madame

Some time ago, I was craving croque madame! The ultimate breakfast – doesn’t take a whole lot of time to make, and tastes good cold and hot, can easily be served as a part of the breakfast-table, brunch or as a part of a french-inspired tapas night! 🙂

You need:
Toast (8)
Eggs (Four fried eggs – smiling!)
Tomatoes (two, cut into fine pieces)
Mustard (2 tablespoons)
Ham
Cheese (grated)
Sour creme (250 gr)

How to:
Pre-heat the oven 200 Celsius
Mix sour creme with the mustard and 100g grated cheese, and season with salt and pepper.
place four slices of toast on a griddle, put a slice of ham on each toast, afterwards you put on the tomatoes, a tablespoon of the mixed sour creme, and some more grated cheese on top. Then you place a slice of toast on top, and bit of butter on each.
Bake in the oven until golden (this is a croque monsieur)
It becomes a croque madame, when you fry the eggs, and put on top of the bread when out of the oven.

This is of course served with either a homemade tomato-sauce, ketchup or homemade tomato-relish 🙂

If you have a day-old croissant, you could then use the croissant instead of the toast, by cutting the top of the croissant..

Enjoy!

Within my family we have always loved food – no exceptions. In this house we live to wine & dine. Wether it’s Italian, the French cuisine, Asian or the Aussie’s BBQ’s, we all got a favourite dish. When I cook, I cook with my heart. On a daily basis I work as a lifeguard, swim coach and assistant consultant at accounting company, further more I’m studying at Aarhus University where I’m about to take a masters degree. As it might appear I’m fairly busy, but one thing will be sure, the food and recipes on this blog is coming directly from the heart!
