Meals to fill you up, without filling you out!
Happy early Easter everyone!!
I have always loved Easter. As a kid you got to eat an unhealthy amount of hidden candy found all over the yard and in trees, and as an adult you get to eat yummy brunch and mimosas! I have so many recipes that are so simple but look like it took all morning. Those are my favorite kind of meals so with that said lets Hop in the kitchen and make Turkey and Roast Beef Croque-Madame.
Start by pre heating your oven to 400*
We need to make a roux so get out a large skillet and melt 6 oz of butter over low heat until bubbling, whisk in flour and cook 1 minute to get out that “flour” taste. next, whisk in your mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg. You’ll need to grease an 8 inch baking dish, once complete pour a thin layer of your roux on the bottom. Cover the roux with 4 slices of sourdough bread. Pile each bread slice with however much turkey and roast beef you would like. Then, add a slice of swiss cheese and add a top of sourdough. Pour the remaining roux on top and place in oven to cook for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes remove from oven but don’t turn off the oven, you will need it again shortly.
Melt butter in skillet over medium heat, crack eggs over melted butter to fry. Cook until whites are nearly set which is about 3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until completely set. Transfer the fried eggs to top off each sandwich and add gruyere cheese. Place pan back in oven to broil for another 2 minutes.
Brunch prep is almost done….
The only thing left is the mimosas!
