Croque Madame at Madame Messieurs in Paris

The croque monsieur is a Parisian bistro classic: a simple ham-and-cheese sandwich blanketed in creamy béchamel sauce and dressed up with grated cheese before it's slipped under the broiler.

Madame Messieurs has made the humble croque the star of its menu, with several different variations at any given time, featuring cheeses like Basque sheep cheese and cheddar. A fried egg over the top transforms the croque monsieur into a croque madame and adds even more richness.

Movie/TV Trivia


During the scene where Robbie (Oliver Robins) is being strangled, the clown's arms became extremely tight and Robins started to choke. When he screamed out, "I can't breathe!" Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper thought that the boy was ad-libbing and just instructed him to look at the camera. When Spielberg saw Robbins's face turning purple, he ran over and removed the clown's arms from Robbins's neck.
