A Croque Madame is a grilled cheese and smoked ham sandwich topped with a sunny side up egg. I used Black Forest ham, Gruyère cheese, and whole wheat sourdough bread because I want to be known as That Guy who makes a mean sandwich.
Within minutes, this mini-sandwich was reduced to traces of errant crumbs and fingertip grease. No egg yolk dribbled and wasted.
Skip on the fried egg
you sissy and you end up with a Croque Monsieur. Who knew that eggs can define gender? Oh, nevermind.
The sudden need to make such a sandwich came from an unexpected source. You may have heard that expressing random thoughts in 140 characters or less is what the cool kids are doing right now. You’re not limited to digital words, though. You can also tweet links to photos of all things mundane. Such as dinner.
Which leads to this awe-inspiring photo of Croque Madame served with tempura green beans. Does that look good or what?
Now go make your own or visit the Paramount Room if you’re in the neighborhood.
