Babbys first croque madame. I fucked up the egg and bechamel so they are lessons for next time.

Any tips on improving bechamel?

How was it?

Better than a standard toasted sandwich. Bechamel was too thick I think. I'm gonna try less flour and slightly more warm milk next time.

What was your recipe?

Something like 2 T. flour per cup of milk is pretty common in recipes, but I've always found it way too thick and I use half of that.

I followed the recipe from the munchies video on making croque madames.

If it wasn't good, make it better. If it was good then enjoy the delight and ignore the appearance.

Good bechamel is made with roux first (half butter-half flour) then adding milk.

A good and well detailed recipe (disclaimer : it's in froggyspeak) : http://chefsimon.lemonde.fr/marques/chef-simon/recettes/sauce-bechamel--8

Tell us how you made your bechamel and we can tell you where you went wrong.

Bechamel is one of the 5 main mother sauces.

All culinarians know how to make the mother sauces.

Like he says you need to use Roux. And you add the roux to Cream for the best bechamel sauce. Make sure to strain it well before you serve it.

To poach an egg is simple, boil a small pot of water, once it reaches boiling turn the temp all the way to low low, then you can add a splash of white vinegar, this is a cheat. Then crack in the egg.

Don't forget to use ultra fresh eggs, the white is more thick and stay around the yolk way better.

this is true.

I do alot of poached eggs for my egg sausage muffins I make a home.

And every once in a while you get an egg that goes into the water and the white just explodes everywhere in the water. It does not hold together at all and you can tell it was probably an old egg.

You have to start over.

But its very rare for that to happen.
