Good Morning

Croque madame with spinach

This is a lovely, rich and very tasty breakfast, with the crunch of the spinach leaves and toast breaking up the smooth cheese and egg yolk.  A winter favourite.

Method (Serves 1)

  • Lightly toast the bread.
  • Spread mustard over one side of each piece then top one with the ham and half of the cheese, and the other with just cheese.
  • Grill both pieces for about 3 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and turning golden.
  • Meanwhile, fry an egg to your liking.
  • Assemble the two piece of toast so there is ham and cheese in the middle, and just cheese on top, and then gently position the fried egg on the top.
  • Serve with the spinach, lightly tossed with a bit of olive oil and white wine vinegar.
