Recently I had the opportunity to have a fun brunch with my mom at a trendy Beverly Hills French café. When presented with the menu, my eyes were immediately drawn to a croissant sandwich topped with a poached egg. The sandwich was encrusted with cheese, sprinkled with parsley and served with a side of fruit. The experience was lovely and delicious.

My mind began to spin its wheels on how I could re-create this tasty brunch at home with my own Latin twist. I love using Cacique’s Queso Cotija shredded cheese to encrust my grilled cheese sandwiches, so I figured why not encrust the flaky croissant to give my brunch a savory taste? The flavor isn’t powerful but a great complement to the creaminess of the busted egg yolk of the fried egg.

Our home brunch was a raving success. Not only was I able to recreate a fancy sandwich at home but a fancy sandwich that everyone, even those family members with discriminatory taste, loved.
