Egg Frittata Croque Madame

Veggie & Swiss Cheese Egg Frittata

This classic French sandwich stacks layers of flavor from the rye bread to the ham and gruyere cheese. Though it traditionally has a fried egg on top, we’ve given it a twist by adding our savory and delicious Veggie & Swiss Cheese Egg Frittata instead.
