croque madame with poached eggs

croque madame with poached eggs


  • 4 slices Dietz & Watson Maple Honey Ham
  • 3 slices Dietz & Watson Swiss Cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 6 slices avocado
  • 2 English muffins


  1. Cut the top off each English muffin, using the muffin as the base for the Croque Madame.
  2. Add three slices of avocado on each muffin base, then place the Dietz & Watson Swiss Cheese on top of that, and then the Dietz & Watson Maple Honey Ham on top of that.
  3. Prepare a pot for the eggs. Fill a shallow saucepan with three inches of water and bring it to a simmer.
  4. Crack the egg into the saucepan and add distilled white vinegar into the water, now turn down the heat until the bubbles disappear, and use a wooden spoon to make the water swirl keeping one egg in the center of a whirlpool at a time.
  5. After three minutes remove the eggs and place each one on the ham. The yolk should wiggle, but shouldn’t be too loose. Poke the eggs a little bit to allow the yolk to run down each muffin.
