Croque Madame

After I read Lazy Man’s Croque-Monsieur, I remember that I have eaten Croque-Madame before so I go through my photo album and dig out these photos.

Back in 2012, Delicious at MidValley was having this breakfast set from 8am to 11am for MYR9.90++ (service charge: 10%, gov. tax: 6%).  Croque Madame - Poached egg stacked on grilled bread and turkey ham with cheese sauce (Cheddar, Gruyere, Parmesan and Mozzarella) served with a drink.

I do not eat poached egg due to the runny yolk but just for this time, I did by mixing the runny yolk with the strong tasting cheese sauce. Ended up very satiated but it tasted fine. I then skipped lunch and only ate a light dinner - that was how satiated I was by this meal.

Taken from wikipedia.org: A croque-monsieur is a hot ham and cheese (typically Emmental or Gruyère) grilled sandwich. It originated in France as a fast-food snack served in cafés and bars. A croque-monsieur served with a fried egg or poached egg on top is known as a croque-madame.

  5. LOL! Nice! But, the cheese is on top of the egg instead of in between the bread? Then this is not too authentic. The cheese is supposed to be the glue sticking both slices of bread together.
    But then, the taste should be the same lah :D

  12. I LOVE runny egg yolks and I LOVE strong cheese too! :)

    I ate a Limburger in Germany that my better half would not touch. I thought it was nice and I wanted her to try it but she only managed a nibble coz she doesn't like all the strong tasting and smelling cheese that I love.|

    Oh ya, how come you don't eat runny yolks?
