Croque Monsieur?

wyf4lyf | Jul 9, 2005 09:33 PM

I've been looking at my cookbooks and on the internet at Croque Monsieur recipes. Some use a bechamel sauce and others don't? What is the authentic method? Does anyone have a recipe that you've tried and loved?


P.S. And for the Croque Madame (with the egg on top) -- is it a fried egg or a poached egg? The really odd thing is that in the Julia & Jacques at home cookbook, they say a croque madame uses chicken instead of ham! No mention of an egg anywhere. Yet all over Paris, the croque madame was just a croque monsieur with an egg. Does anyone know the story here??
