This ham, cheese and egg croissant sandwich is my favorite breakfast sandwich. So delicious and very satisfying.

I could eat this breakfast sandwich every single darn week!
When I first had this sandwich, I was at a restaurant and I ordered the eggs sunny side up. I did NOT want them overcooked. I asked the waitress specifically not to let the cook, the chef, overcook the eggs. I liked them soft. You know? Runny.
They Don’t Listen
It was like I was speaking gibberish. Because when my ham, egg and cheese croissant sandwich arrived, I was sadly disappointed. The eggs were cooked hard. Yolks solid.
I wanted to scream, “What the heck is this? Do you call this sunny side up? DO YOU?”
Of course, along with the screaming, there would be some physical stuff going on, like me lifting the waitress up by lapels and shaking her like I was shaking a martini.
But I dutifully ate the over cooked thing. I knew it wasn’t her fault. (I hoped it wasn’t.) I would have sent it back, but I was hungry and didn’t want to wait any longer than I already had.
I ordered this breakfast sandwich a few more times. Hope springs eternal. But they always overcook the eggs, like they are totally incapable of putting a sunny side egg on a breakfast sandwich.
So, I basically make them at home and I don’t order them in restaurants any more.
On to the Ham, cheese and Egg Croissant Sandwich Recipe
I have a nice fresh croissant, two eggs, muenster cheese and ham. Let’s get started!!
It’s super easy, so it only takes a few minutes.
First, heat up a sauté pan and fry up two pieces of ham, and set them aside.
Broil that Bad Boy
Next, I set my oven to broil. I cut the croissant in half and lay it on a small jelly roll pan. I place a piece of muenster cheese on the croissant and stick it in the oven.
Back to the sauté pan, I add a tablespoon of butter and crack in two eggs.
Build It and They will Come
Once the eggs are done, I place the eggs on the ham. I had to use a martini pick to keep the ham, egg and cheese croissant sandwich together for the photos!
Mmmm. Dang it all, one of the eggs broke, but that’s okay, I was going to break the yolks anyway. (See? Like I said. Runny!)
And now I pick the ham, egg and cheese croissant sandwich in my hands and eat it all up, wiping my fingers all the way!!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe!! It’s super yum.
