Corona Croissant Creations

Top Choice Breakfast Entree

I love croissants. But only the ones made with butter. A crispy large hot croissant with ham, eggs, and cheese is one of my top 5 breakfasts that I love to have in the morning. But if they are not made just the way I like them, they become more like gut fillers than a delectable feast.

For the longest time, I had been used to fast food restaurant or pre-made frozen store bought versions. Then one day I was on a construction job site and the local roach coach arrived for the morning break and I was hungry. So, as much as I prefer to avoid getting food this way, I succumbed to the temptation.

I saw a breakfast sandwich in the hot bin and took a chance. It was a large crispy croissant with a slab of ham, a scrambled egg, and cheddar cheese melted inside. I took one bite and entered into gustatory heaven. It was the most delicious breakfast sandwich I had ever tasted.

I went over to the food truck purveyor and asked him why the sandwich tasted so good. He told me that the toasted croissant was made with “butter”. It was light and flaky and very much different from croissants I was used to which were made without this necessary ingredient.

Weekend Breakfast Machinations

My wife and I are pretty conscientious about having a health breakfast from Monday through a Friday each week. The meal includes blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and peaches topped with either cottage cheese (her) or Greek yogurt (me).

On Saturdays and Sundays, I cook a regular eggs-centered breakfast. The list includes:

  • Eggs Benedict
  • Eggs over easy with corned beef hash and hash browns
  • Grits with eggs over easy on top and bacon 
  • 3 egg omelet with sausage and sliced fried potatoes

The list includes my long-standing favorites, but now I have a new one which includes finding the source for large butter croissants and using them to make my own breakfast sandwiches. My previous attempts were made with an English muffin, but they can be tough to eat if not perfectly fresh and slightly toasted too much.

Winn Dixie To The Rescue

Since we live in a rural area outside of a small town, our two choices for grocery shopping are a Walmart SuperCenter or a Winn Dixie supermarket. Since the corona virus pandemic forced us to initiate self-imposed quarantine measures, we have stayed clear of the crowded Walmart and the much more lightly inhabited Winn Dixie.

The croissants in the bakery section at a Walmart are small and unacceptable for the type of breakfast sandwich I wanted to make. Winn Dixie has both small and large. And they are made with butter. Perfect, if they provided the flavor I was looking for.

NOTE: Our local Winn Dixie Supermarket has a nice bakery section where we can buy Artisan Style baked goods like Ciabatta Bread, Focaccia Bread, including the butter Croissants mentioned here. However, we have found a local lady who also bakes these for us. Nice!

My Recipe

  • I took 2 croissants (out of a package of 4) and carefully sliced them open (evenly)
  • I then preheated the oven to 350 degrees and also an electric griddle to high
  • Next, I took a large 1/2 inch thick ham steak and carefully sliced it horizontally into 2 ham steaks. I then cut one of those in half to create 2-1/4 in slabs that fit nicely on the croissant
  • After that, I placed the pieces on a microwave-safe plate and covered each one with a slice of Swiss cheese (Cheddar Cheese is okay too)
  • Next, I heated them in the microwave for 20 seconds to warm them up and soften the cheese
  • Then I scrambled 3 eggs with a little milk

  • Next, I poured the scrambled eggs into 2 small batches on the griddle using a spatula to shape the eggs into the approximate size of the croissants.
  • While they were cooking, I buttered (with real butter) the open side of each croissant half.
  • When the eggs were done, I placed each ‘shaped’ scrambled egg concoction on one side of each croissant half.

  1. Then I added the warmed ham/cheese combo to the opposite side of each croissant half and joined them together.
  2. Then I put the croissant breakfast sandwiches on a paraffin covered baking pan and cooked them for about 5 minutes to get the croissants hot and crispy.
  3. When done, Voila! Perfect croissant breakfast sandwiches that were loaded with flavor.

ENJOY!
