Quick Croque Monsieur Question...

mrsx | Nov 3, 2008 07:16 AM

What's not to love about a croque monsieur? Crunchy toasted bread sandwiching savory ham and cheese, bathed in bechamel?

Well, egg fanatic that I am, the egg that turns the he into the she is about the only thing missing for me... Question, then, what do you think about asking, when a croque monsieur is listed on the menu, and when eggs in other forms are listed on the menu, whether it's possible to get a croque madame?

Am I being difficult by asking politely (Is it possible...?) or is this a simple request? I asked and was told it wasn't possible this weekend over lunch at Eastern Standard and I was a bit surprised... Now I'm wondering what you all think?
