We always take the first thing out of the fridge when we’re in a hurry. This time, instead of a sandwich made of two pieces of toasts, go for an egg-and-avocado sandwich made of two halves of a croissant. Fried, scrambled, poached, or sunny-side up – whatever your preference, this satisfying breakfast will make sure you have a productive day without making you late for work.
Ham and Cheese Croissant

Depending on where you live and your eating habits, you’ll probably use different types of ham and cheese for this croissant sandwich. This rather unusual recipe contains a deli ham and Muenster cheese, some watercress to ensure your greens intake, and a sliced pear for added vitamins. Just spread some mustard on the sides of the croissants and layer the bottom one with the needed ingredients before you top them on the upper side of the croissant.
Blueberry BBQ Roast Chicken & Blueberry Corn Salsa Croissants

This is a colorful culinary creation fit for social events or home gatherings. While the creation itself is not that time-consuming, the preparation of the necessary blueberry BBQ sauce will take about an hour until it’s made, chilled, and ready to use. What you also needed for this recipe is some salsa with canned corn for added color and some roast chicken, previously marinated in the blueberry BBQ sauce. After you have buttered the croissants and layered the chicken, just add the salsa mix and some chopped green onion on top.

Yet another French croissant recipe that you can prepare in a little over 30 minutes and serve immediately. What makes this one special is the beef fillet steaks, the kosher salt, the freshly ground pepper, some Brie cheese, and some arugula among the rest. Just toast the croissant halves, layer the cheese and some of the arugula, and add the medium-rare steaks between the red bell pepper slices and the rest of the arugula.
Baked Ham Prosciutto Camembert Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

If there is something bound to tickle your taste buds, then this cheese and prosciutto croissant sandwich glazed with honey mustard are definitely it. After preheating the oven to 190°C/Fan 180°C and cutting the croissant in half, simply add as many layers of Camembert cheese and prosciutto as you like and glaze the croissant halves with a generous amount of olive oil and honey mustard mixture. All you need to do then is bake it for 6 minutes and eat it while it’s still warm.
Tip: for a Camembert cheese substitute, use one that doesn’t spread as much if you’re not too keen on picking up cheese off the floor as you eat.
