I worked in a cafe when I was 19 where we served a egg and bacon croissant, it was amazing. Any sunday I wasn’t working i would go in and eat that croissant for breakfast.
I have been thinking about creating my own version of that croissant for quite some time and I am so happy with what I came up with.
This breakfast reminds me of being 19 and the friendships I had both with the people and the customers at that cafe. It was an amazing place to work, I learnt so much during my time there.
They start with croissants topped with cheese and put under the grill, the cheese gets melty and the croissants get a little crispy around the edges.
Next add bacon, this bacon is special. Its been coated in maple syrup and baked until crispy and caramelised. It is so good!!
And the scrambled eggs, these are packed with chopped parsley to add an extra hit of flavour.
I hope you make these for you friends or family they are quite easy to make. I would love to hear you thoughts on these.
