How to Make a Breakfast Croissant

As I mentioned, if you make the bacon ahead of time and buy the croissants, you can put this breakfast sandwich together in a matter of minutes. The only thing you need to make is the scrambled eggs, and I have a perfect recipe for those here. In case you don’t click on the recipe, you will need 6 eggs, 4 tablespoons of buttermilk, 1 1/2 teaspoons of corn starch, and 1 tablespoon of real butter. Of course, add salt and pepper to taste. This will be enough for all four sandwiches. I also UNDERCOOK the eggs slightly. They bake for an additional 5 minutes in the oven, so they will be cooked through.

Once you have your eggs made, layer the bottom of each croissant with a slice of cheese, 3 slices of bacon, and 1/4 of the scrambled eggs. Top with another slice of cheese and the other half of the croissant. Beat an egg for an egg wash to brush on top of the croissants and bake them for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melting, at 400°F. Be adventurous with your cheese choices if you want to…I love cheddar and swiss on my breakfast sandwich.

How to Bake Bacon

When I cook bacon, I do it in the oven. This allows me to make bacon ahead of time for some recipes. I set the temperature to 415°F and while it is preheating, I lay out the individual slices of bacon on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.  (Yes, right on the pan! No rack needed.) They are perfectly crispy in 18-20 minutes. To save them, just let them cool and wrap the bacon in paper towel then place inside a sealable plastic bag in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it.

    1. You can assemble it the day before. Wrap tightly (not too tight, but snug) with foil. Then heat in the oven for a few minutes before you open and enjoy.
