Keto Croque Madame

Madame Crunch goes keto. The result? Ham+Cheese+Egg=TASTY. We've just swapped out the bread with cottage cheese and egg pancakes, and the result is an even tastier keto classic. All of the flavor, none of the carbs.

Remove the crowning fried egg and you’ll have a Keto Croque Monsieur instead. Still keto. Still delicious.
