This ham, cheese and egg croissant sandwich is my favorite breakfast sandwich. So delicious and very satisfying.
To begin with, 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. So, 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. In contrast, yolks solid.
Hence, 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 because I knew it wasn’t her fault. (At least, 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.
Even more, 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.

How to make this breakfast sandwich
Gather the ingredients – croissant, eggs, ham and muenster cheese.
Heat the sauté pan on medium and add two pieces of ham. Fry them until they are fried and set them aside.
Set your oven or toaster oven to broil.
Cut the croissant in half and place it on a small jelly roll pan. Add a piece of muenster cheese on the croissant and stick it in the oven.
Stand there and make sure the cheese is melted and the croissant is lightly toasted.
Meanwhile as the croissant is toasting, heat sauté pan on medium. Add a tablespoon of butter and once it melts, crack in two eggs.
The croissant should be done and the cheese melted, take it out of the oven and transfer to a plate.
Add two pieces of ham.
Cook the eggs how you like them. I like them sunny-side up and runny.
Once the eggs are done, place the eggs on the ham. Also, I had to use a martini pick to croissant sandwich together for the photos!
I stuck my knife in the yolk to get it flowing.
I hope you enjoyed this croissant sandwich recipe.
If you love sandwiches, I also enjoy a good cherry camembert sandwich.
And as always, may all your dishes be delish!
