My little munchkin loved the croque-monsieur and she asked for the same lunch the next day. I decided to make another version of the same sandwich: the famous croque-madame. The croque-madame is essentially a croque-monsieur topped with a sunny side up egg. If you ever get confused about which sandwich is which, just remember that the "female" version is just like the "male" version, but with extra flavor .
I added ketchup and flat-leaf parsley to create the face of an angry clown to make the sandwich kid-friendly and more playful. In case you were curious, she loved it!
For those of you who are wondering if the croque-mademoiselle exists, it does! It's supposed to be more delicate like a diet version, with whole wheat bread.
* I want to give a special shout out to Cookie and OysterCulture, who mentioned that they also make croque-madame at home. Full Recipe...
