It’s hard to believe I ate my first Croque Madame sitting outside the Centre Pompidou in Paris – eight years ago. EIGHT YEARS! Goodness, time really does fly.

The French are known for their refined pallets and delicious dishes so it’s no wonder that this sandwich can pack so much flavor. Best part?! This simplified version can be made in less than 10 minutes. Yup, you really can have it all! A delicious lunch when you are in a time crunch! (Yup, that definitely sounded better in my head…)
