Croissant Breakfast Sandwich

Say goodbye to morning pit stops because this easy-to-make croissant breakfast sandwich is ready in minutes.

Start with ready-made croissants for easy prep. Then make a quick batch of soft scrambled eggs and crispy bacon.

Add some melty cheddar cheese, and it’s ready to be devoured!

This is a classic grab-and-go breakfast everyone will love.

And you’ll love it even more knowing your family is starting their day with a hearty, hot breakfast.

Plus, it’s completely customizable and meal prep-friendly. Add any fillings you like, wrap it up, and store some sandwiches in the freezer for later.

They’re a lifesaver on busy mornings!

Ingredients

This easy breakfast sandwich recipe is like magic. It transforms six simple ingredients into a mouthwatering meal!

Here’s what you need:

  • Eggs – Beat the eggs before cooking. That way, they get nice and fluffy.
  • Seasoning – A little pinch of salt and pepper seasons the eggs perfectly.
  • Butter – For frying the eggs. Bacon grease is a great substitute. For a healthy fat, use olive oil.
  • Bacon – Thick-cut bacon crisps up and doesn’t burn as easily. Use streaky bacon or back bacon if you like.
  • Cheddar Cheese – I love the bite of sharp cheddar. But use whatever melty cheese you like best.
  • Croissants – Don’t worry; we’re not making these from scratch! Just grab some from your local bakery or grocery store.

Here are a handful of variations to try:

  • Swap out the bread. A buttery croissant is heavenly, but not the most healthy. If you want a different bread, try whole wheat, sourdough, or an English muffin.
  • Try other meats. Breakfast sausage, turkey bacon, and smoked salmon are some fun ideas. You can also skip the meat to make it vegetarian-friendly.
  • Add a condiment. For a quick flavor boost, add Sriracha, mustard, hot sauce, pesto, or good old ketchup.
  • Use other seasonings. Garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, sage, or thyme – you pick!
  • Get creative with fillings. Try smashed avocado, tofu scramble, spinach, tomato, onion, bell peppers, or garlic butter mushrooms; the options are endless!

Make-Ahead and Storage Tips

Are you in too much of a rush for breakfast? Plan ahead and make these croissant breakfast sandwiches!

Fridge or freezer, you can keep them on hand for whenever you need them. Here’s how:

To Make-Ahead: Assemble the sandwiches without the eggs, wrap, and refrigerate overnight. When ready to eat, cook and add the eggs, reheat the sandwich in a skillet, and enjoy.

To Store: Place cold leftover breakfast sandwiches in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 1 day. You can also store the fillings in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

To Freeze: Place the assembled, cold sandwiches on a baking sheet. Freeze until solid, then wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in a freezer-friendly bag for up to 6 weeks.

To Reheat: Reheat cold sandwiches in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until warm. Wrap frozen sandwiches in foil and reheat at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until warm.

This easy croissant breakfast sandwich is loaded with fluffy eggs, crispy bacon, and gooey cheese. It’s a classic combo that always satisfies.

Ingredients

  • 2 large croissants

  • 4 slices thick sliced bacon or ham

  • 4 eggs

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1-2 tablespoons butter, for frying

  • 4 slices cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Cut the croissants in half horizontally. If desired, lightly toast the inside in a dry skillet or under a broiler. Set aside on serving plates.
  • Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat (or under a broiler) to the desired level of crispiness. If using ham, fry lightly in a skillet until warm. Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Gently beat the eggs in a small bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then, add them to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until they’re set but still moist.
  • Divide the eggs between the bottom half of each croissant. Top with 2 slices of bacon and cheese each.
  • Place the top half of the croissant on top, then carefully place the whole sandwiches into the skillet. Press gently and cook over low heat until lightly toasted on the bottom. Flip and cook the tops, if desired.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • Try other meats. Breakfast sausage, turkey bacon, and smoked salmon are some fun ideas. You can also skip the meat to make it vegetarian-friendly.
  • Add a condiment. For a quick flavor boost, add Sriracha, mustard, hot sauce, pesto, or good old ketchup.
