Thomas Keller’s Croque Madame

Thomas Keller’s Croque Madame


Thomas Keller is the very best! This sandwich is my new favorite sandwich. The familiar flavors in this sandwich are intense and very satisfying. Mornay made with gruyere has a very pleasing flavor. This would be a great introduction to French cuisine. I am very happy that during the past 7 months I have used this blog to have the experience and knowledge to make food this exciting.

In the video for making a croque madame, Thomas Keller makes a Pullman loaf [1][2] of brioche. The recipe in the Bouchon Bakery cookbook for making a Pullman loaf is not a brioche recipe.  I used a recipe for brioche (Nanterre [1][2]) from this book.  The loaf that I made was a perfect size for making sandwiches. I will probably have to increase the proportions by 1.5 to make a Pullman loaf. The ad hoc cookbook may also have a recipe for making a loaf of brioche.

The ham is black forest ham. I cooked the egg by heating the pan over medium until some butter melted, and then I added the eggs, and then I changed the heat to low after covering the pan with a lid. After using a thermometer while baking bread, someone can know how many minutes to bake bread using their equipment.
