Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant

In the mood for a breakfast sandwich that is simply out of this world? Well then, you’ve come to the right place. This Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant is made up of a buttery croissant, two whole eggs, three strips of pork bacon, and a slice of cheddar cheese. The eggs are seasoned with salt and pepper and cooked for only a few minutes so that they can remain soft to the bite.

I decided to make this one morning when I did not feel like driving to my local cafe. My local cafe makes one of the best bacon, egg, and cheese croissants that I have ever tasted. However, I was just too tired to drive out to get one. So, I embarked on making it at home.

Luckily I had all of the ingredients on hand to make it myself. It was rather quick to make and I learned quite a lot during the process. I learned that it is OK to not season the eggs with as much salt because the bacon and cheddar cheese do the job in the salt department. Also, I had enough ingredients to make three sandwiches. So, making this croissant breakfast sandwich at home taught me that the cost of my ingredients combined added up to the cost of about ONE sandwich. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I could make three sandwiches for the cost of one! That opened my eyes, for sure! I have been making these for the past couple of weeks and am glad to be saving money…and gas fuel.

If you’re a coffee drinker, then this bacon egg and cheese croissant pairs wonderfully with a hot cup of coffee. I love to wake up in the morning and brew my fresh coffee while my bacon sizzles and my eggs cook. The smell of coffee, bacon, and eggs reminds me of my childhood when I would go visit my grandma’s house in North Carolina. She would always make the best breakfast! Even the smell of the butter croissant reminds me of her house. 

After cooking the bacon and eggs, you’ll want to assemble everything on the bottom half of the croissant. Then put on some cheese. Pop the sandwich into the oven for about 5-7 minutes at 350°F. Once it comes out, serve with your favorite spread or dip. You can also just eat it plain. Sometimes I like it with a little grape jelly. However, I know a lot of people who like breakfast sandwiches with ketchup. It is your choice and after all, they are your taste buds that must be pleased!

You can also make a few of these at once and freeze them for up to 1 month. Or, refrigerate them for up to 1 week. Simply, reheat them for 10-15 minutes in a 350°F oven and you are in business. 

I am glad that I learned how to make these! Next, I am going to try making homemade croissants! Now, I no longer have to go to my favorite cafe to get these. I can just make it right in my house and I can make multiple at once! Hopefully, you too can bring your favorite cafe to your very own kitchen. Enjoy your Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant.
