When it comes to finishing touches on a plate, there's not much that doesn't benefit from an egg on top, including this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week. Without an egg, France's version of a specialty ham-and-cheese sandwich is a simple croquet monsieur, but when dressed up with golden, runny egg, this richly indulgent sandwich layered with indulgent, creamy bechamel sauce becomes an over-the-top beauty called a croque madame. Follow Alex Guarnaschelli's lead and opt for Gruyère cheese to add a rich, nutty taste to the sandwich.
