Croque Madame
This twist on a French classic is simple, tasty and filling. 

1 brown or multigrain roll

3 slices of Emmental or Edam cheese

2 slices of ham

1 large free range egg

Cut the roll in half and toast each side under the grill.

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and turn down to a simmer. Swirl water with a knife and add the egg.

When the roll is toasted, place a slice of ham on each half and split the cheese between the two. Return to the grill.

When the cheese is bubbling and golden, move to a plate and place your poached egg on top. Eat on its own or with a salad.
