In honour of mom's everywhere, we are sharing a recipe for one of our favourite sandwiches - the Croque Madame. If you've never had a croque madame before, you are in for a treat. This sandwich originates in the bars and cafes of France and begins as a "Croque Monsieur", but when you pop a fried egg on top you transform into a Croque Madame. It requires a knife and fork to eat this outrageously cheesy sandwich and is perfect as a lunch or light dinner. Serve it with spring greens tossed with a light vinaigrette (and perhaps a glass of rosé). Happy Mother's Day everyone.
The most moist and delicious lemony pancakes! You don't even taste the ricotta, it just lends richness and moisture. These have been on of our favourites for years and I often make them when I have a half a carton of ricotta leftover. My favourite way to serve them is with warmed maple syrup and a dollop of blueberry jam or fresh blueberries.
This Mother's Day is certainly unlike many other's we may have celebrated in the past. Many of us are unable to be with our children or parents but hopefully we will be able to connect virtually, socially distanced or by sending warm thoughts to the person who has been there for many of our firsts. This simple breakfast is easy for the kids to put together and serve mom, breakfast in bed!
