Rise and shine!

Oof. Pretty hard to rise after a long night of tequila shots and cheap beer. Even harder to shine.

Fear not, friends. We have just the medicine for what ails you. It's savory, bready, cheesy, a little greasy, très français, and super delicious. We're talking about the classic croque madame.

Perfected by Kris Morningstar of LA's Terrine, this sandwich—in addition to being a melty, carby joy—is made saltier with the addition of ham, tangier with a pat of Dijon mustard, creamier with a smear of béchamel, and richer with a fried egg.

RECIPE: Croque Madame

The croque is your friend. Its gooey, savory innards and perfectly toasty exterior will make you feel better. This much we can promise.

Pin it for later!
