Keto Croque Madame

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.

  3. Assemble a sandwich with sliced ham and cheese between two of the warm pancakes. Add finely chopped onion on top.
  4. Rinse and dry spinach. Mix oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a simple vinaigrette.
  5. Add more butter to the frying pan and fry an egg to serve atop each sandwich.
  6. Serve each Croque Madame warm beside spinach dressed with the simple vinaigrette.

Tip!

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

    I just want to correspond with someone. I'm no sure how to figure the 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs. Do you count the grams on the nutritional chart? I just want meal plans without paying so much.

    Ok, taste similar to omelette.
    Gently mix egg with cottages cheese. Add 2 table spoons of p.husk to achieve good consistent mix. Add salt and pepper , otherwise it’s very bland. Enjoy.

    Hi Melanie,

    Calculate your macros in grams not in %, as otherwise it’s confusing.
    Focus on carbs intake , I would suggest to read about it first, and understand where are hidden carbs and which product contain minimum carbs, as this helps a lot. Yes, you would focus on the grams in total as this is the easiest way. There are plenty of recipes online. I suggest to pick those ones which are familiar to you and those ones which contain products which you already eat , as it makes it easy to adjust the recipie and you hardly notice a change. Let me know if you need more help , I have plenty of advise as I have been doing it for 6 months and the diet works but could be tricky.
