A Modern Take on the Classic Croque Madame

imageI eat sandwiches almost everyday and they more often than not always include cheese. I love them. They’re so easy to make, delicious and they can keep me full for hours, and this sandwich certainly didn’t disappoint. As the title states, this a classic twist on the French dish: Croque Madame. I don’t often eat white bread, as white foods usually irritate my stomach, but I needed this sandwich to be thick and scrumptious and I just so happened to have a thick loaf of bakery bread in my cupboard, so how could I resist?!

I used the new meat-free gammon slices by Quorn in my Croque Madame and they were so bloody tasty! I would highly recommend these to any vegetarian who is looking to add more protein to their diet, or even just to eat something different. The gammon slices are very thin, but they pack a mean punch when it comes to flavour. However, just like the bacon and turkey, they are a tad plastic in texture.


  • 2 Slices Thick White Bread
  • 1-2 Slices Quorn Gammon Slices (cooked)
  • 35g Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Slice Edam (optional)
  • 1 Free Range Egg
  • 1 knob of Butter


Heat a pan with the butter on medium heat, then add the cooked gammon slices and cheese to one slice of bread before closing the sandwich with the second.

Poop the sandwich in the frying pan and cook both sides until golden. When the sandwich has cooked set aside and fry the egg, then pull back one slice of bread from the sandwich, add the fried egg and enjoy.

  • You can serve the Croque Madame with salad or eat it on its own.
