We at, Cook the Book Fridays,
are now well on our journey
cooking from My Paris Kitchen,
David Lebovitz's latest book.
for putting everything into order and making it happen!
my collection of David's books:
Fried ham and cheese sandwich (p. 137)
aka croque monsier
I grilled the sandwich (held down with a heavy heat-proof plate) in the griddle pan,
instead of baking in the oven, worked just fine!
paired with fresh Starfruit (too lazy to make a salad!)
woot? I missed out the last step?
(with the balance of the bechamel)
The top heating element in my toaster oven stopped working
(say after the warranty period) and I refuse to use the gas oven (just for broiling?)..
so I tried out Jamie Oliver's tip of covering the food you want the cheese to
melt with tin foil, I used a small metal bowl... boleh lah (can lah)
so there we are .... croque monsieur and croque madam!
you can see I don't know how to fry an egg...
Grab my portion (for breakfast this morning, and after my fruits!)
cannot resist a tiny splash of Lingham's hot sauce!and here is a similar dish I made after seeing it at Mary's blog post
