Last spring when Alan was at a conference in Orlando, Florida, we came across something I’d never seen before.
They were flaky, savory breakfast sandwiches called
“Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissants.”
Even though this restaurant (the Rosen Plaza Hotel) has an assortment of fabulous breakfast items,
after we’d tried all the yummy offerings, and it was time for just one last bite,
we both wanted to have “one last stuffed croissant” for our grand finale.
Therefore, this morning, I’d like to share with you my own rendition of this most memorable breakfast treat.
Stuffed Breakfast Croissants
(Makes 6 breakfast sandwiches)
- Preheat the oven to 375° F.
- Start with one package of Crescent Dough (or better yet, croissant dough, although some types have smaller rectangles)
3. Spread out the dough sheet and cut into 6 equal squares.
4. Add a slice of your favorite cheese (or whatever’s in your fridge) to each square.
5. Fry bacon (1/2 slice per sandwich) and lightly scramble eggs (1/2 per sandwich; just cooked enough so they won’t run off the cheese!) with salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon chopped chives, garlic powder, and whatever else your family likes (pepper, mushrooms, onions, etc.) per taste. (You could use sausage and eggs also, or an assortment of veggies with eggs, or even straight veggies!)
6. Add the bacon and eggs equally on top of the dough and cheese.
7. Wrap the two edges of the dough together and pinch to seal.
8. Bake in the oven at 375°F. for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.
9. Serve with some fresh fruit and beverages, and you’ve got a breakfast that will please most anybody!
We love to take in some spiritual food with our breakfast too. It’s a great habit. Just a few minutes from a devotional book will give your soul some food for thought to help fuel a day of grace! 🙂
“Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 11:18-19).
