Ham and Cheese

Ham and cheese croissants are baked in the oven, allowing the cheese to ooze from the savory croissant.

Slices of ham are warmed in the microwave, and then placed in the center of the sandwich.

You can use slices of cheddar, Havarti, or Swiss cheese and add them to the sandwich for a delicious ham and cheese croissant sandwich.

Ham and cheese sandwiches are baked in the oven, letting the cheese melt down the sides of the croissants.

Strawberry, Basil, and Prosciutto

Prosciutto croissants are warm croissants that are baked in the oven.

Croissants are cut in half, and slices of brie are placed on the bottom halves of the croissants.

The bottom half croissants with cheese are baked in the oven, along with strips of prosciutto laying on the baking sheet to crisp them up.

Eggs are poached or fried in a frying pan to cook them for the sandwich.

Once the bottom half croissants have come out of the oven, top them with 1 egg on each sandwich.

Add slices of strawberries, avocado, crispy prosciutto, fresh basil leaves and arugula to the savory croissant sandwich.

Drizzle honey, and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Add the top part of the croissant on your layered sandwich and enjoy!

Pesto and Chicken

Pesto chicken croissants are made by combining and mixing together shredded cooked chicken, pesto sauce, and Greek yogurt in a bowl.

Slice the croissants in half lengthwise, and evenly distribute the pesto chicken onto the bottom half of the croissants.

Top with slices of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and argula.

Place the top half of the croissants on the sandwich and enjoy!

Turkey, Bacon, and Avocado

Turkey, bacon and avocado croissants are similar to a club sandwich, except on a buttery, flakey croissant!

Croissants are sliced in half lengthwise, and Dijon mustard is spread over the bottom half of the croissants.

Each croissant sandwich is layered with crispy bacon and slices of turkey breast.

You can get sundried tomato, or peppered turkey breast for your sandwich for a little more flavor if desired.

Top the sandwich with lettuce, slices of avocado, diced red onion, and cucumber slices.

Place the top half of the croissant on the sandwich and enjoy.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese

Bacon, egg and cheese croissants are breakfast sandwiches you can have in the morning.

Eggs are cooked with a bit of butter, chives, and cheddar cheese in a frying pan. You can either scramble the eggs or make them into an omelette, adding a little salt and pepper to them to taste.

Assemble the breakfast croissant sandwich by slicing the croissants in half lengthwise.

Add crispy pieces of bacon, and the eggs and cheese on top.

Place the top half of the croissant on top to make a sandwich.

You can also bake the sandwiches in the oven for a couple of minutes to warm the croissants.

Mushroom and Brie

Mushroom brie croissants ooze with melted brie and tart cranberry sauce.

Sliced mushrooms are cooked in a frying pan with olive oil, butter, thyme, minced garlic, sea salt, and freshly ground cracked pepper.

To assemble the croissants, they are cut in half lengthwise, and then slices of brie are placed on the bottom half of the croissants.

Cranberry sauce is spooned on top of the brie cheese for the sauce of the sandwich.

Mushrooms are heaped onto the sandwich, and the top half of the croissant is placed on top to make this savory lunch croissant.

The croissants are baked in the oven for about 10 minutes to melt the brie cheese, and served warm, right out of the oven.
