What Is A Croque Madame Open-Faced Sandwich With Fried Eggs?
This classical French sandwich is either called Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame. They are made with either a fried egg or poached egg placed upon the sandwich fillings.
They usually contain deli ham, Swiss Cheese, and a classical Bechamel Sauce. Served up today on crusty French Baguettes.
It’s a classical French breakfast, which made its way to America back in the 1910s. Typically this sandwich is fried, but today, I used my Air Fryer to create a delicious and hearty breakfast option.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Croque Madame Open-Faced Sandwich With Fried Eggs

How To Make Air Fryer Croque Madame Open-Faced Sandwich With Fried Eggs
Start by cutting the baguette in half. Then spread the deli ham over the bread, overlapping it.
Place the covered baguette in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray. Spoon the Béchamel sauce over the ham. Then place the Swiss cheese over the Béchamel Sauce. Set in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 340 degrees F, air fryer setting.
As soon as the cheese melts, remove it. Meanwhile, fry two eggs and then put them on top.
- This recipe can work with any Air Fryer, I have made them over the years in both Air Fryer Basket and Oven Models. This recipe also works well in the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Vortex, Omni by Instant Pot, Instant Pot Crisp Lid, and the Meathy Lid. The recipe will remain the same.
- For best results do not crowd the Air Fryer Basket.
- Cut the bread to fit your model of air fryer.
- Without a fried Egg on top, this recipe is known as Croque Monsieur. You can follow the same exact recipe as below and simply omit the Egg.
- Bread: While you can use any bread, the best bread to use is a thicker beard, such as a baguette, sourdough bread, and Artisan Bread.
- Cheese: While I used classical Swiss Cheese, you can easily switch this out for any of your favorite cheeses, some of my favorite variations would be Gouda, Sliced Mozzarella Cheese, and a great Gruyere.
