Croque madame/ Madam Crunch

Croque madam originated from France and it’s made with bechemel source , fresh cream ( bechamel source) , Dijon , cheese , ham and some crunchy bread topped with porche eggs and cheese . The name croque madam means madam crunch in a direct English translation. Guys , as you all must have noticed , l like to customise some of my recipes. So l made this delicious and quick croque madam for dinner and the kids were on the moon and asked for croque madam in the morning . I made a naked crunchy croque monsieur last night because l was tired to spend much time in the kitchen. Looks like my girls love little nice stuffs for dinner . That golden brownish top with cheeze oozing from the corners gave it a wow factor …
