For us croissants are a sometimes food. Christmas morning with ham and eggs for breakfast and the odd one through the year, yes those darn calories, but gee they taste good!
If I happen to find croissants at the end of the day on the markdown shelf at the store I buy a packet and take home. They can be frozen for a later date. For us I like the mini ones best. It’s cheaper to buy the plain croissants rather than the ones already prepared with fillings. I like my fresh fillings, my proportions.
Cut croissant in half (defrost first if frozen) and sprinkle on some grated or finely chopped dark or milk chocolate. Put them on a wire rack on a tray and pop in a preheated 200*C oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they feel crispy and flaky. Watch they don’t burn.
Make your own ham and cheese by putting on your slice of ham and grated cheese, pop in a preheated 200*C oven for about 10-15 mins. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
Mini chocolate croissants ones are great for an easy dessert. I do them when visitors come over as they are easy to prepare earlier and pop in the oven while dinner is being eaten, must use the oven timer.
Ham and cheese come in for us a birthday or maybe a special occasion breakfast.
These are what I call one of those very easy but we just forget about things to make.
