Sometimes the Mrs. orders french toast at brunch spots. This was the first time I tried the overall concept of grilling egg soaked bread. Turns out to be incredibly easy to make! If you ever need a quick but indulgent breakfast, this dish fits the bill.
Just came back from a lovely trip to Europe w/ the Mrs. We had a nice long stay in Paris, France. Croque Monsieur is a popular dish served in Parisian cafes. Had not heard of the dish until this past trip and ordered it by chance. It is basically a crunchy ham sandwich with a lot of cheese. As soon as I came back home, I knew I had to try to make it myself.
And for reference purposes, this is how a croque monsieur looks like served in a cafe:
Decided to jump on the kale band wagon and see what all the fuss was about with this lovely pasta dish.
The Mrs. liked the lemon zing in the dish, I needed to keep the bottle of red pepper flakes close by :).
