Recipe: Simple Breakfast Croissant

I am not a breakfast person but I LOVE eating breakfast food. For sure I have to have my coffee in the morning with cream and sugar. I definately enjoy having breakfast for dinner. I really don't have time to make breakfast in the morning with my crazy schedule, especially a big breakfast so that is why I like to take the time in the evening to make a big dinner-breakfast for my family.

Tonight I made some easy breakfast sandwiches. I made some shredded hash browns on the side cooked in butter, and a fresh fruit (strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries) salad. For "dessert" I made some cinnamon rolls.

4 butter croissants, sliced lengthwise, toasted, if desired


Honey ham, thinly sliced (I just used the lunch meat packages)

8 slices of Bacon, figure 2 slices of bacon per sandwich

Shredded Mexican style cheese

4 Eggs, scrambled

Take each croissants and slice them in half lengthwise and toast if you like it that way.

Add enough mayo to cover each slice of croissant, or to your desired liking.

Take a small pan, add some butter and turn it up to medium-high heat.

Add the honey ham and fry for a few minutes on each side; remove and keep warm.

Cook bacon until crispy, and break each strip in half.

Using the same pan from cooking the ham, add a little bit of butter and cook the egg, preferrably scrambled. (If you fry the egg with a soft and runny yolk, beware when you take a bite- the yolk will run everywhere and can make a real disaster! Trust me I do know about this.)

To assemble the breakfast croissant: take the bottom half of croissant and add mayo, slices of ham, then the bacon, half a handfull of shredded cheese, egg, and put the other half of the croissant on top.

Serve immediately while hot.

Makes 4 servings; 1 sandwich per person
