Croque Madame

This delightful variation on a classic French sandwich features sliced ham and melted Swiss cheese served on a split golden-brown Conestoga® Buttermilk Biscuit that’s been topped with an over-easy egg and savory Pioneer® Old Fashioned Biscuit Gravy. For another tasty variation, leave off the egg and serve it as Croque Monsieur!
Cook Time 6 minutes
Servings 48 small open-faced sandwiches

  • 24 Conestoga® Simple Split® Buttermilk Biscuits (3047), thawed
  • 48 Ham slices
  • 48 Swiss cheese slices

  • Preheat convection oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare the Pioneer® Old Fashioned Biscuit Gravy Mix according to the package instructions. Set aside.
  • Leave the thawed Conestoga® Simple Split Buttermilk Biscuits in the bakeable tray and bake in the oven for 4–6 minutes, or until golden brown. Split biscuits into two halves and set aside.
  • Assemble the sandwiches on a parchment-lined sheet pan by placing a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on each biscuit half. Place the sandwiches in the oven only long enough for the cheese to melt. Remove from oven and set aside.
