    Croque Madame

    This sandwich is a French classic that often comes topped with a béchamel sauce. However, with acid reflux disease, it is better to keep things as simple as possible, so the recipe below is an easy-on-the-stomach version.

    Cooking spray or 1 Tbs butter

    2 slices of bread

    2 boiled eggs (the classic version calls for fried eggs)

    4 slices deli ham

    4 slices deli Swiss cheese



    Heat butter or cooking spray in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the slices of bread and toast lightly on one side and then turn the bread. Top the turned bread with the ham and the cheese. Slice a boiled egg onto each slice of the bread. Cover the pan with foil and turn off the heat. Let the sandwiches stand for five minutes in the pan to melt the cheese. Serve warm.
