The Croque Madame, if you’ve ever been lucky enough to have one, is like a sandwich on some sort of steroids developed solely to enhance delicious.
It's essentially a sandwich of cheese and ham with a softly cooked egg sitting on top of toasted brioche, all topped with mornay sauce. It’s fatty as hell and often served with fries, terribly bad for you but so, so good.
In the video below, you can watch Thomas Keller share his recipe for the classic dish from his Bouchon Bakery menu. The chef explains why the dish means so much to him as he takes you through the step by step process of how to put together a perfect croque madame.
Trust us on this one, this recipe will take your sandwich game to entirely new heights.
