You won’t be able to contain this croque!
I don’t generally have favourite foods or dishes, but I’d happily eat Croque Madams till the end of days!
What is there not to love?
I’m a big believer in a little bit of what you fancy does you good.
A croque is definitely not a healthy option, so keep this one to an occasional treat. But what a treat it is.
Traditionally made with smoked ham, this is my vegetarian version. I had very similar in Cafe Rouge and loved it so much I had a massive craving to remake it.
The Madame refers to the fried egg on top, if you wanted to omit the egg it would then be a croque Monsieur.
So Madam et Monsieur, crack on and get cooking. you will not be disappointed.
Make sure you pick up Issue 10 of Worcester Styles Magazine as Bake Love is featured on pages 22-27.
In this issue we look at Salt & Pepper and the reason behind seasoning. Plus if you are looking to make something for the weekend why not make my Mediterranean Baked Eggs which is also featured.
People of the world, everyboy and every girl! Spice up Your life!
Well the spice girls had one thing right ( secretly they had everything right, I was a massive fan- yes I even went to see the film).
Variety really is the spice of life. My spice cabinet is always stocked with a range of spices, from hot to mild, from bitter to sweet.
I love to experiment with all of them and play with the sweet and savoury element.
My current top four favourites are: turmeric, cinnamon, saffron and cardamom.
