I saw a recipe for a croque madame and simply had to try it. I made it for a brunch for family on Christmas eve and I do believe it was a hit. Thick slices of artisan sourdough bread filled with ham, bechamel sauce, gruyere cheese and topped with a lovely fried egg. One of the egg yolks got a little more firm than I would have liked but...I didn't have to eat it :-) The other 3 were perfectly runny. This classic was simply served with a side of warm spinach salad. I enjoyed trying this recipe as I have never attempted to make this sandwich before and those who ate it thought it came out quite nicely so it was a success!
I hope to make some nice nibbles for New Year's Eve along with various drinks. I don't know what it is about those around me lately, but nobody drinks. I have never been a drinker and now it feels as though everyone around me is dry as well. How odd. I have all this alcohol and nobody wants it.
I think I'll start drinking.
