Croque Madame

By Meeta K. Wolff

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 1


  • 2 slices crusty bread, I like to use a good German sourdough
  • 2 slighter thicker slices of good quality ham
  • 100g grated cheese, like Comté or Gruyère
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat the grill to high and lightly toast the bread on both sides until golden.
  2. Spread the mustard on both slices, sprinkle with half the grated cheese and arrange slices of ham on the bread - sandwich them. Top remaining grated cheese then place under the grill to brown and melt the cheese.
