Saturday mornings should be spent lazily around the house in pijamas, with a nice brunch and catching on blogs, magazines, or TV-shows. What better way to spend a Saturday morning?!!
When I came across this recipe for Croque-Madame on Cupcakes and Cashmere, I knew that I had to try it because : a) I love brunch; b) I love ham, cheese and eggs; c) It looks so damn good I just had to try it for myself.
It was SO easy to make, and it was absolutely DELICIOUS. This is also a perfect recipe to make for a group of people because it looks more complicated than it actually is, so you can impress your friends.
I didn’t really change recipe other than using this simple béchamel sauce by Mario Batali. I would probably even exclude the béchamel sauce altogether next time, or would add parmesan cheese to it. Actually, I didn’t really follow the proportions because that’s just how I roll (although my boyfriend would disagree with this method of cooking…). You can easily add some spices and flavors to the béchamel sauce, or use a different kind of cheese on the bread! That’s the fun part about cooking: there are no rules! (well…sorta…)
What’s your favorite brunch food? Any good recipes I should check out?
