Homemade Mother’s Day Brunch
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and while it may be too late to find an available restaurant reservation here in the city, it doesn’t mean you can’t still show mom some love. So why not host a Mother’s Day brunch at home? Nothing shows your appreciation for all those years of mom’s homemade meals than cooking her a meal yourself!
And we’ve got the perfect dish for the occassion: Landmarc’s classic croque monsieur. It’s indulgent yet rustic and simple - perfect for a cozy brunch at home. Our croque monsieur is such a hit in the restaurant that we’ve even started serving mini versions as hors d’oeuvres at our events. Try our signature recipe below to bring that touch of restaurant flair to your mom’s own dining room this Sunday!
Croque Monsieur/Madame serves 4
Béchamel makes 1 1/3 cups
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 cups milk, heated
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat, about 10 minutes. Add milk and nutmeg, whisking until smooth. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool and set aside.
4 1-inch thick slices country bread
12 thin slices black forest ham, about 1/2 pound
1/2 pound gruyere, grated, about 2 cups
1/2 cup béchamel
freshly ground black pepper
Place three slices of ham on each slice of bread. Top with a thin layer of béchamel. Sprinkle gruyere equally on top of each sandwich. Season with ground black pepper. Place under the broiler until cheese is melted and golden brown.
