Llet Merengada

Ingredients:

1 liter of milk

150 grams of sugar

the skin of one or two lemons

2 cinnamon sticks

2 egg whites

powderd cinamon

 

Preparation:

Heat the milk with the sugar, cinnamon sticks and lemon peel which has been cleaned before hand… As it starts heating up, never stop stirring the mixture, slowly and clock-wise. Remove any cream that may be formed. Whenever it starts boiling, remove it from the heater.

We prepare the meringue by beating the egg whites until fulffy and then we add a tablespoon of white sugar. We add it to the mixture, slowly and a stirring it with love. Once it’s all stirred in, you put it in the fridge and wait for it to cool.

 

Once it’s cool, you enjoy!

That’s it folks!

 

It’s a very easy recipe that everyone enjoys and it’s very very healthy. I hope you all try it. By the way, use good quality milk, like skimmed milk. And don’t remove the cinnamon sticks.

 

See you all soon! Remember if you want any recipe, or tips on how to prepare a special ocasion, just say the word!

 

Dijon Croque Monsieur

Hello there!

Finally I’m back, it’s been a long month full of exams and hard dedication to my studies and now I can invest some time into a few new recipes!

For this one we will be going French! Oui Oui, François! This is a really simple recipe that’s famous in France. If you ever go to Paris, you have to ask for  a Dijon Croque Monsieur. It’s similar to a grilled cheese sandwich, only that it’s a bit more elaborated!

For this recipe you’ll need to go buy some specific ingredients. But don’t worry, you wont need to go to France to buy them! They are all at your local grocery shop!

I recommend you do this recipe when you have a few friends over, and you want to do something different, with a unique taste, and that you don’t feel like making a big meal. It can also be a great snack while watching any sports match!

Monsieurs, madams, ici c’est la recette:

Le Dijon Crôque Monsieur

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
  • 8 slices Italian bread
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced ham
  •  Gruyère cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions:

1- Stir mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl until you can only see one color. Spread the  mustard mixture over the slices of bread. Each slice should be covered with a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. Sprinkle evenly with pepper. spread the mustard mixture on the top slice of bread and put on top of the cheese. You should have a “sandwich” now, with first layer Bread, second layer Mustard mix, third layer ham, fourth cheese and sixth mustard mix with bread.

2- Combine the egg and milk in a  bowl ( small one ). And dip both sides of the sand which in the egg mixture. Or with  a brush spread out the  egg mixture on both sides.

3- Heat a large griddle, put a little of oil so it wont stick, put it at medium heat and ad the sandwiches to the pan. More or less it should be three minutes until its brown at the sides and the Cheese is melted

And that’s it!

This is  a perfect snack after a long day. And it’s also great to share with friends. I recommend everyone to try it.

See you next time!
