breakfast sandwich-

A hearty and filling breakfast is a must, and this sandwich is just that. The flaky crispy croissant sandwiches are loaded with egg, cheese and ham in the most amazing creamy honey Dijon sauce. The flavors come together and create the most amazing of combinations.

McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches and Starbucks can’t even compare to the taste of these homemade sandwiches.

how to make the best breakfast sandwich-

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, over medium, heat the butter and oil. Add the egg mixture, add the diced tomatoes and onions, close the lid on the skillet. Cook until the eggs are almost fully cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the honey Dijon sauce (honey mustard sauce). Whisk together the mayonnaise, honey, Dijon mustard, paprika and hot sauce.
  4. Slice croissant in half lengthwise. Cut the eggs into 6 equal parts.
  5. Add ham, cheese, egg and top with sauce (you may need to fold the egg if it’s too large for the sandwich).
  6. Bake croissant sandwiches in the oven for 15 minutes at 350°F, or until tops of croissants are crispy and cheese melts (cover towards the end of baking if cheese needs more time to melt).

TIP: Don’t overcook the egg mixture, it will taste too dry. It’ll finish baking in the oven.

can I make breakfast sandwiches the night before?

can I freeze breakfast sandwiches?

    Hi Valya, my kids love grab and go breakfast sandwiches for the week and I’m so excited to try these! Do you think I can make these with English muffins instead of croissants? Can I also substitute bacon in place of ham?
