Because of its fluffy texture and buttery taste, it’s still made and served today. Dreamlike morning is always somehow related to having a warm cup of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and a croissant breakfast sandwich.

Before we introduce you to how to make ham, egg, and cheese croissant sandwiches yourself, we would like to give you some other options too. Not to discourage you, but baking croissants is not an easy job. To create this airy pastry, you’ll need time and patience for it to turn out perfectly. Smoked salmon bagel or Balkan phyllo doughnut dough, also known as “ustipci” are some of our suggestions for starting your day off in the right way.
Breakfast Croissant Recipe Ingredients
What you’ll need for making this croissant breakfast sandwich are thin slices of ham or smoky bacon, quality cheese, desirably one that is melting well like cheddar and of course eggs and croissants. You can find fresh croissants at your local store or nearest bakery, but when the pastry is home-made, the flavor is incomparable to any other. Besides these, mustard or mayonnaise can add up to the exquisite taste of this luscious breakfast.
First of all, you should use room temperature butter. Secondly, you should buy cheese slices. If cheese slices are not your cup of tea, you can always use a grater for whichever cheese you’ve chosen. The way you prepare eggs may slightly change the flavor of your egg croissant sandwich, so do it the way you like the best. You can make scrambled eggs, and turn flavor from flat to full by adding some milk, salt, and pepper while scrambling. A poached egg is also a delicious choice and it goes great with ham, egg, and cheese croissant sandwiches.
Recipe for Making Egg Croissant Sandwich
The breakfast croissant recipe gives a special flavor to your mornings. These sandwiches will literally make you rise and shine.
The first step is to preheat the oven. Cut the croissants in half and place them on the baking paper. Using the baking paper will prevent the juices from sandwiches from getting stuck on your baking tray thus making the cleaning up much easier. Melt the butter using the bain-marie method and gently brush it over the croissant halves. Place a few slices of ham and a few slices of cheese on one side of the croissant. Cover it with a full spoon of scrambled eggs or one poached egg. When done, overlay the other half you’ve only brushed with melted butter over the half you’ve placed the other ingredients on. Put the ham, egg, and cheese croissant sandwiches in the oven.
You will know that breakfast is ready when you can smell the tempting aromas coming out of your oven. If you want to know if the job is done, you should check the cheese. If it has melted, the croissant sandwiches are ready.
