A “Croque Madame” sandwich sounds fancy schmancy and difficult to make but with my recipe it’s super easy to make and ridiculously delicious! Just 6 ingredients and you have a total ‘WOW’ meal!
Anytime I hear well, anything French, I think about my high school French teacher – Mrs. E. She was one of those ‘cool’ teachers in school that let you be a free spirit in class, pass notes and even ‘share’ answers. She would take our desks and put them all in a circle so we could have one large discussion. The only rule was you were not allowed to speak in English at all. Anything you said had to be in French and had to be correct. Now when you’re a Freshman you learned the important things – “can I go to the bathroom? I need to see the nurse. I don’t understand” and with that she worked with you. But by senior year you had to speak French as well as well, a native French person. Lord help you if you forgot one of those important things like “I have to go to the bathroom”. LOL
One thing Mrs. E shared with us with her love of France was her love of French foods. We’d often have ‘French food days’ in class where we’d all pitch in and she’d bring in homemade French foods or better yet, make them in class. She’d make crepes, chocolate bread sandwiches, escargot – yes she fed high school students snails (and they rocked!) and then she made us Croque Madames.
Now if you’ve never had croque madame or even heard of one all you need to know is that they are AMAZING and you need it in your life ASAP! Now I’ll get into what goes into these beauties but when I tell you that you need one in your life/belly trust me on this.
Get your fancy schmancy on with this seriously delicious sandwich!
You’ve not had an amazing grilled cheese sandwich until you’ve made this Monte Cristo! Layers of salty ham, luscious gruyere cheese, tangy dijon mustard and sweet raspberry preserves dipped in this French toast mixture and then grilled to perfection!
I have a confession…
*hangs her head*
I’ve been holding out on you. <deep sigh> This recipe I made about a year ago *ducks to miss the shoe that someone just threw at me*. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. For the past year I kept saying to myself “You have to post that sandwich. You need to get your butt in gear and post this. People will flip over it!” But I didn’t listen. Honestly there is no real reason why held out on sharing this. Monte Cristo sandwiches aren’t a new thing but for some reason I posted everything but this. Like we’re talking recipes I literally just created, took the photos the same day and posted the recipe the next day.
I suck, I know.. but you still love me… right???
And I guess while I’m treating this like church, I might as well confess one more thing. Mr. Fantabulous does not like this but he does not hate it either. What that means is he refused to try it; not even a single bite. He said and I’m quoting here “That is NOT French Toast, that is NOT Grilled Cheese. That is a Frankenstein concoction that I will not be a part of.” Frankenstein? I didn’t exactly create a monster here dude. LOL big baby!
I’m telling you, make this once and you’ll be making this a thousand more times because you’ll fall in love with it!
These Thanksgiving Gobbler Rolls are seriously the most DELICIOUS way to transform those Thanksgiving leftovers into something truly mouth-watering! A tender sweet roll dough packed with mashed potatoes, corn, roasted turkey and stuffing topped with “gravy” icing and cranberry relish garnish!
Question – what’s your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal? Is the eating it when it’s straight out of the oven with your loved ones all around? Or is it that 2am fridge raid for those cold turkey sandwiches? Or what about leftovers the next day – or as my Mom would call it “Thanksgiving #2”? For me it’s all of them but honestly I’d have to say my all time favorite is how I get to revamp those leftovers into something incredible. You’ve seen my Gobbler Wrap and Gobbler Pizza. However I have to be honest guys, this recipe today… it’s something special. Like if I had to choose between this and my gobbler pizza, this will win out And you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOVE pizza. But this, dear God people it’s literally everything you would expect how a cinnamon roll would be BUT instead of sweet it’s full-on savory Thanksgiving-fied!
So did you survive Thanksgiving yesterday? Hopefully no family squabbles, dry birds or failed desserts. Growing up Thanksgiving was a big deal in my house; hell any day where there was a huge feast was a big day. But for us Thanksgiving is where Mom would cook for days, pies upon pies, and people coming in and out of the house all day long. Our main meal was at 2pm, 3pm if Mom was making a backup meal. Yes you read that right, back up meal.
Veggies burger are part of the “norm” and rightly so. They are delicious, hearty and can stack up to your traditional burgers. These Zucchini Ricotta Veggie burgers are juicy, hearty and perfect for you meat-free meals!
Are you a burger purist? Do you insist that a burger is comprised of beef and nothing else? Do you scoff at the thought of a chicken or turkey burger? Does the mention of a veggie burger make you shudder in pure disdain? Well this post isn’t for you. However I think you’re a fool to skip past this post and recipe. I kid you not; you’re seriously missing out on something truly incredible and delicious. Be a rebel here. Be like those folks that decided to try salted caramel or candied bacon.
It’s funny as growing up veggies were my nemesis. I would turn my nose up at the thought of eating zucchini. I was all about the beef (’bout that beef, ’bout that beef.. sorry was channeling Meghan Trainor there for a minute). I was one of those burger snobs. Burgers had to beef and nothing else.
Be a Burger Rebel and make these delicious burgers!

Growing up in Pittsburgh there were a few things that you were born into. You were born with the notion that all salads come with fries on them. You were born into a language of it’s own – Pittsburghese. And you were born into Pittsburgh Football nation. You were a die-hard black ‘n gold football fan. And lastly, you were born into serving killer food during those football games. Being that house that hosted the games was a right of passage. Some folks waited decades to become the house where we gathered. Some just impressed right out of the gate and they took over the hosting.
Up until we started the remodel on the house, mine was that house that hosted the games. I’d put out a spread that would rival any Vegas buffet. Now to know me you know I never do simple. While I love simple chips and Pace® Salsas, I need to take them to another level. That’s why I’m super stoked share with you 2 seriously delicious game time recipes featuring Pace® salsa and picante sauces. We’re making game time saucy! Today I’m sharing with you 2, yes TWO, recipes. One is for my Creamy Chicken & Salsa Pinwheels and the other is for my famous Double Bean Cheeeeesy Bean Dip.
Today I’m serving you up 2 killer recipes that will go perfectly with the big game!
