#BritishSandwichWeek: Croque Madame Recipe

Croque Madame

Ingredients:

Sandwich:

2 Slices of bread

2 Slices of cheese (Emmental, Gruyere, Cheddar)

2 Slices of thick cut ham

 

Bechamel Sauce:

25g Butter

1 Tbsp flour

125ml Milk

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

1 Tsp of Dijon mustard

 

Topping:

1 Large egg

 

To make the Bechamel sauce slowly melt the butter in a pan on a low heat, once melted, add the flour in parts and beat it with a wooden spoon until it forms a ball. Then slowly add your milk to the pan and keep stirring it over the low heat to keep it nice and smooth. Once you have added all your milk, add your seasoning and leave it to thicken for a couple of minutes. Set the sauce to the side.

 

Lightly toast your bread under the grill and then butter each slice, layer the cheese and ham on one slice and place the other slice of toast on top. Then spoon your sauce onto the top of the sandwich, place under the grill until it starts to turn golden brown. Meanwhile, put a knob of butter in a frying pan and crack open your egg. Fry the egg but make sure you keep the egg runny, once ready place on top of your sandwich and serve with a side salad.

Pet of the Month: Truffle

IMG_1461
Truffle is a 5 month old Cockapoo.  She lives with her owner Lynn and her family including 2 chickens called Octavia and Florence. Each morning Truffle races out to see the chooks although her devotion is not entirely reciprocated!  Truffle enjoys a fresh raw egg twice a week thanks to her feathered friends.
Lynn said “Truffle’s delighted to be pet of the month! She was bought from an excellent breeder  – Anzil Cockapoos in Knowsley near Liverpool. We got her in January and she now lives with us in Chester along with our four cats and two chickens who are lovely Pekin Bantams.”

 “She has a wonderful personality and has almost got us trained to pander to her every whim. She is fun loving and very devoted to us.”
Apparently her favourite toy varies but is currently a small teddy bear made for dogs. She also loves squeaky toys!
“Truffle has bags of character. When she is hungry she goes into the kitchen and looks pointedly at her bowl. As you can see she has very expressive eyes.”
According to Lynn she’s funniest when she has a mad half hour and races frantically around the garden. Much to the concern of the chickens watching from their Eglu.
Look at how photogenic this dog is, we <3 Truffle!
If you think your pet deserves to be ‘Pet of the Month’ please email sam@omlet.co.uk with a picture of your pet and a short description.
