This adaptation turned heads at the supper table. The inspiration...a great big thank you to Fine Cooking!
I was not familiar with the Croque Madame. After checking with various sources, including Wiki, I found easiest English definition would be a grilled cheese sandwich. This opened a door and the wheels began to turn.
My taste buds were ready for a bacon cheeseburger and the inspiration began.
The base of my creation was a toasted rye slice,
topped with fresh mesculin and ranch dressing.
I find the best method for bacon is using the oven
on a rack at 375F for 12-15 minutes.
No mess and perfectly flat bacon!
I grilled a sirloin patty until medium well, topped with the fried egg with cheddar cheese under the egg. Topped with fresh parsley to finish.
What a great combination of flavors...and the bacon cheeseburger urge was satisfied! Yum...and this will be a keeper.
The soft cooked egg provides a wonderful "sauce" for the entree!
