Weekend Breakfast 6 - Croque Madam Muffins


Another recipe from my new favourite recipe book - Croque Madam muffins. Very, very tasty. And quite possibly fattening.


First you make a Mornay (cheese) sauce. Then, cut the crusts of slices of white bread and roll them flat with a rolling pin - I found this strangely satisfying. Brush both sides of the bread with melted butter then gently push into a muffin tin. Add some sliced ham, a small egg, then two tablespoons of the cheese sauce. Sprinkle on some grated cheese and pepper, then bake in a hot-ish oven for around 15 minutes. 


The butter coated white bread tastes just like fried bread, crunchy and greasy at the same time in the best possible way. All the flavours - ham, egg, cheese - all good. Unfortunately there is no money shot of the runny egg yolk as the egg was softly set. I left these in the tin for five minutes to cool slightly as I thought they would be tricky to prise out, and the egg carried on cooking. Next time I will reduce the cooking time by a couple of minutes.


Have a great Sunday everyone.
