Yuri made us a croque madame sandwich, and it was delicious. He also prepared us a croque monsieur sandwich. So we could do croque monsieur vs croque madame! So what is a croque madame? Well it’s basically a grilled cheese sandwich with bechamel and a baked egg. So a grilled cheese sandwich with extra, as the French make it.
The recipe for the croque madame comes from the cookbook Het Grote Kinderkookboek from Karin Luiten. You don’t need a ton of ingredients. You need slices of white bread, slices of ham, grated matured cheese, crème fraîche, butter, pepper and eggs.
Another recipe on the blog that Yuri prepared himself is the Easy Lasagna Recipe.
The recipe was easy to follow, Yuri didn’t make any changes.
