     Croque Madame

Category   Breakfast - Brunch
Sub Category   None
Preptime   30 minutes

Ingredients
4 tbsp unsalted butter
3 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
kosher salt, pepper
nutmeg
1 cup gruyere cheese, grated coarsely
8 slices of bread
4 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 pound black forest ham
 
4 large eggs

Instructions
Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, then whisk in flour and cook roux, whisking, 3 minutes. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, 5 minutes. Whisk in salt, pepper, nutmeg, and 1/3 cup cheese until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and cover surface directly with a sheet of wax paper.
Spread sauce evenly over each of 4 slices of bread, then sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese (1/4 cup per slice). Spread mustard evenly on remaining 4 bread slices and top with ham, dividing it evenly, then invert onto cheese-topped bread to form sandwiches. Lightly oil a 15- by 10-inch shallow baking pan. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately low heat, then cook sandwiches, turning over once, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes total. Remove from heat and transfer sandwiches to baking pan, then wipe out skillet with paper towels. Preheat broiler. Top each sandwich with 1/3 cup sauce, spreading evenly. Broil sandwiches 4 to 5 inches from heat until sauce is bubbling and golden in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off broiler and transfer pan to lower third of oven to keep sandwiches warm. Fry eggs, covered. Top each sandwich with a fried egg and serve immediately.
