Description: Sliced ham and Swiss baked into flaky croissant dough. Perfect for breakfast on the go.
La Madeleine is a full-service chain, and although this menu item can be ordered by dine-in customers, it includes the phrase “perfect for breakfast on the go” in its description. That, and the combination of ingredients, seemed to appeal to busy breakfasters. The handheld pastry features sliced ham and Swiss cheese baked into a flaky croissant dough. French-inspired La Madeleine takes the standard croissant sandwich and bumps up the presentation for a baked-from-scratch look.
