Breakfast Scramble Croissant

This is more of an idea than a recipe. Serving your egg scramble in croissants adds a special touch to an old favorite.

Here's some ingredients to add to your egg scramble for an extra boost of flavor.

10 eggs beaten and set aside
Ham chopped or ground sausage (fully cooked)
1 Jalapeno seeded and minced
2 tablespoons diced red onion or 2 stems of scallions diced
1/3 cup cilantro chopped (optional)
1/2 cup or more grated cheese of your choice
Olive oil or butter  (1 tablespoon of either)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat ham or sausage in olive oil or butter add onion and jalapeno and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat add the beaten eggs and stir into other ingredients including salt and pepper and distribute ingredients well. Add in the cilantro. At the very end of the eggs setting add the grated cheese and turn off heat.

Cut open 12 croissants and fill with egg mixture. Serve immediately with seasonal fruit.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone. Are you wearing green today?

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. That looks perfect! It even hints of Spring which would be so welcome over here. Happy St. Patricks Day to you too! I don't have much of anything green in my wardrobe but might have to pull out an old green sweater to wear today.

  3. Oh, boy...does this ever look delicious. Breakfast is my fav. meal of the day....and I will make these as soon as I can get the bread.
    I wore green yesterday so I wouldn't get pinched...:))
