Please enjoy this repost from our Paris trip in 2010. The nice weather here in SF keeps bringing me back to Versailles with its lovely gardens and hidden groves.
I will admit that up until this point, I was afraid of the cheese aspect of the Croque. But, last night, Kristen ordered one and assured me it was just a mild cheese, so today, I ordered one.
To be honest, I didn’t realize that the croque madame came with an egg on top. It never occured to me to ask what the difference was between the monsieur and hte madame. Boy am I happy I did.
There are probably better specimens of the croque madame, but this made my day! The oozing egg over the ham and melted cheese was divine.
I am totally going to make these as often as my waistline will permit. What a treat!
Here is a link to a great croque madame recipe.
