Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner so I put together a round-up of recipes.

I do not about you, but in my house, we love Mexican cuisine. I make it at least once a week. Spicy or non-spicy as long as it got Mexican favor I will devour the whole platter or tacos, enchiladas or burritos.

I could pretty much eat refried beans with a spoon. Yes, shamelessly I have done that before. So, some recipes are, of course, fusion but nonetheless, they are so tasty and very easy for anyone to prepare.

I hope you make some my delicious Cinco de Mayo recipes for your celebration. If you please tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking and use my hashtag #sandraseaycooking. Thank you!!!

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich Recipe

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich.

Also, better known as Croque-Monsieur Sandwich. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch.

My favorite way to eat a croque-madame is with a little sunny-side-up egg on top, with a drizzle of hot sauce!

With that being said, you should also try a “Croque Mademoiselle” which is a vegetarian version with cucumber or zucchini and chives.

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich Recipe

I genuinely feel like this sandwich instantly transports you back to a French café or charming bistro, where you may have ordered it while sipping on a café au lait.

You may know this sandwich in the USA as a Monte Cristo Sandwich. Nevertheless, it is delicious whatever you call it.

My husband and I devoured it because we absolutely love a good sandwich. Especially with premium carved cuts of high-quality meats like Hillshire Farm® Premium Carved Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham.

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich Recipe

I partnered with Hillshire Farm to make something very delicious using their Premium Carved Meats.

We used Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham to make this delicious sammie.

So, I took a trip to Walmart and located the packaged lunch meat in the perimeter coolers. There, I found Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Oven Roasted Turkey Breast. As well as Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast.

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich, better known as Croque-Monsieur. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch.

Ingredients

Bechamel Sauce

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter reserve 1/2 tbsp for buttering the bread
  • 1 1/2-2 tablespoon/s All-purpose flour substitute 1/4 tbsp Guar gum
  • 2-2 1/2 cups Whole milk
  • 3 ounces Gruyère Cheese, grated substitute with Swiss Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 Sprigs of Thyme steam removed

Sandwich ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon Melted Unsalted Butter reserved from Bechamel Sauce)
  • 8 slices Sandwich Bread preferably rustic, or traditional Brioche toast
  • 8 slices Hillshire Farm® Premium Carved Meat, I used Ham
  • 8-10 ounces Gruyère Cheese, grated substitute with Swiss Cheese (aged)

Garnish:

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives or green onions

Instructions

Shread/Grate the cheeses; Gruyère Cheese and Swiss Cheese. You may use more or less, but I think this is a perfect amount. I like shredding my own cheese and it melts even better when you do it. 

Bechamel Sauce:

  1. Melt the butter over low heat in a small saucepan and add the flour all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Add milk; bring to a simmer.
  2. Cook, whisking frequently, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the salt, pepper, grated Gruyere, and the Swiss and set aside.

Toasting

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in bottom third. Place 8 bread slices on the baking sheet, butter each toast with unsalted butter, then toast for a couple of minutes.
  2. After the toast slices are nicely golden take it out of the oven. Just to note that you can toast bread in a large toaster or conventional oven as well if that saves you time.

Sandwich Assembly

  1. Top each with half with bechamel sauce, about 1 tablespoon equally spread, then add slices of the ham and shredded Gruyère. Top with remaining bread.
  2. On the very top of each sandwich add about 1 more tablespoon of the Bechamel sauce and generous amount of shredded Gruyère.
  3. Turn the oven broiler on high and transfer the baking sheet with sandwiches in the oven. Broil until the top of the sandwiches with bechamel sauce and cheese begins to bubble, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Slice in half and enjoy

Notes

For Croque-Madame add a fried sunny side up egg on the top and serve.

  • For Croque-Madame, add a fried sunny-side-up egg on top and serve.
  • Gruyère cheese is one of the finest Swiss cheeses. Its taste is nutty and salty when new but varies greatly with age. Since it can be quite pricy, you can substitute with regular Swiss cheese.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

You all probably heard about Low Carb KETO Bread, so I just made my version of the same bread.

When carboholic decide to join the low carb club and cannot live without a slice of bread. That would be me. I just had to clean up my act and start the most strict form of carb cleanse because I felt like I was out of control. 

Have you heard of Keto Bread? I am almost certain that you all probably heard about it, so I just made my version of the same bread.

You guys know that I was baking a homemade bread almost every single day. If not bread than some kind of rolls, focaccia or flatbread.

I am one of those people that would eat heartily bread with pasta. Yup! Guilty as charged… but that was it! It was a time for me to change.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

Well, I am entering my fourth week and I feel freaking fantastic. I lost lots of inches, a nice chunk of weight for a beginner, not too much like some people, but it is going slow and steady which I like the most.

My sleep and energy level drastically improved, I no longer snore, I have far less cramps and no headaches. Overall, so far so good!

I know we all have different success and even failures, some see amazing results in the shorter period of time and for some of us takes time. That’s okay. We are all different and unique.

What can I say? I have never felt better, however, yes, I missed bread the most so I made my own. We tried to experiment for a week with it, and I think this is it. I absolutely love this version.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

The first one that I made was too eggy and buttery, so I dropped to six room temp eggs, added ghee instead of coconut oil and used a bit of sour cream to make it rise up a bit more.

My family wanted to support me so they join Keto Fun as well. So now, I need one fridge just for bacon and eggs because they literally ate over the weekend my week supply of both.

Also, they sincerely love this bread as well and it was gone for lunch. Like, seriously?! I could eat this bread all week long. LE SIGH!

Check out my MINI KETO EVERYTHING BAGELS 

Anyhow, It is utterly scrumptious and so tasty! I know this bread is for sure going in the rotation as long as we are on Keto. I might do some updating like adding cheese or herbs.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

It tastes like cornbread meets savory pound cake, but way less eggy taste… Hey, it replaces reg bread beautifully, so you can eat it once a day or every other day.

I hope you guys like this bread as much we do. With that being said, please, comment and tag me if you make it.

Or just post a pic and tag me so I can re-post. I really want your feedback; good, bad and ugly! Can’t wait to see your creation. Thanks!!!
