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! 🙂
Eggs (Four fried eggs – smiling!)
Tomatoes (two, cut into fine pieces)
Mustard (2 tablespoons)
Sour creme (250 gr)
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..
