Memorable Croque Madame on a Brioche Bun
For an indulgent brunch item you won’t want to share, our Croque Madame on a brioche bun with feta is the ultimate. Be warned: there is nothing “light” about this recipe, and that is fully deliberate. Relish the creamy and cheesy goodness; while it’s decadent, it’s also delicious.
Originally from France, a Croque Monsieur is a ham and cheese sandwich, baked or fried. A variant of the Monsieur, the Croque Madame is a similar sandwich, only with a fried egg on top. Ours steps it up even further, using sweet, soft brioche buns as the vessels for our sandwich.
Start with two brioche buns; cut off the tops and scoop out the centre of the bottom half. In a separate bowl, mix 100g of Krinos crumbled feta with 50g of heavy cream. Add the feta mixture to each brioche, and top with grated Gruyere and chopped bacon. Place the top half of the bun on top and bake at 200 degrees for 6-7 minutes.
As the brioche bakes, fry two eggs, and place one egg on top of each bun.
If you’re serving a full brunch buffet, boil and bake some baby potatoes and drizzle with balsamic cream. Add a petite salad with arugula and cherry tomatoes and savour every bite. This Madame is worth it.
