A Breakfast Muffin You’ll Need To Wake You Up Properly

We love this sweet twist on the delicious Croque Monsieur recipe, into muffins made out of bread! Are you ready for the challenge?

Servings: 6 Muffins

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

The Elements: 

Béchamel Sauce

30 grams butter

30 grams flour

190 ml milk

A pinch of nutmeg

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional)

Muffins (muffin tray required)

6 slices of white bread

Ham slices

6 eggs

Grated cheese


Béchamel Sauce

Put the butter and flour in to a saucepan on low heat and whisk away while the two combine and melt. Using whisk, add the milk slowly in order to avoid any lumps. Keep stirring. Add the Dijon mustard (optional), nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Your béchamel sauce is done and ready!


Cut off the crusts from the slices of bread, take a rolling pin to flatten out the bread and coat the full surface with melted butter

Place the whole slice of bread in the muffin tray, make sure to press it down so it covers the mold. Add bits of ham in the centre of the bread, place one cracked egg on each muffin. Make sure there is less egg white, you can achieve this by cracking the egg first and removing some of the excess egg white.

Add the béchamel sauce on top of the egg and load it with grated cheese. Touch up the sides of the bread with melted butter. Bake the muffins at 200 degrees for about 12 minutes. If you don’t like the egg runny keep them in for another 2 minutes!

#EatExtra Instead of using ham you can go with bacon or sausages.
