Instructions Checklist
  • Cut the top off the English muffin, using the muffin as the base for the Croque Madame.

  • Place three slices of avocado on each muffin base, then place the Dietz & Watson Swiss Cheese on top. Place the Dietz & Watson Maple Honey Ham on top of that.

  • Prepare a pot for the eggs. Fill a shallow saucepan with three inches of water and bring it to a simmer.

  • Crack 1 egg into the saucepan and add distilled white vinegar to the water. Turn down the heat until the bubbles disappear. Use a wooden spoon to make the water swirl, keeping egg at the center of the whirlpool. Cook for 3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon. The yolk should wiggle, but shouldn't be too loose. Repeat with the second egg.

  • Place eggs over the ham. Poke eggs a little bit to allow the yolk to run down each muffin.

I used the basic recipe as inspiration though I'm sure for a quick sandwich this recipe is great (and why I gave it 5 stars). Here are my adds/changes: Used sliced challah instead of English muffin buttered the slices and browned both sides in a saute pan. Remove the slices and browned up a couple more for side toast (for the eggs). Spread a thin layer of mayo on two toast pieces topped with thinly sliced avocado topped that with thinly sliced Swiss cheese returned these to the saute pan and put under the broiler until cheese just melts (don't want hot avocado). Removed from broiler and dabbed cheese with dijon mustard then topped with thinly sliced ham and two soft poached eggs. Sprinkled with salt ground pepper and a sprinkling of chopped parsley. Very pretty on the plate and yummy to eat. Nice flavors. Read More

Both my kids loved it - will make again! We toasted and buttered the English muffin first and substituted Cheddar cheese in lieu of the Swiss. The poached eggs are delicious but you could also easily substitute eggs over-easy. Remember a sprinkle of salt on the egg before serving! Great with a side of hash browns. Read More
