Cheese, bacon and egg croissant recipe

Classic bacon and eggs meet flaky pastry in this brekky mash-up. It’s easy, it’s special and it’s guaranteed to make your morning.

5 Ingredients

– 1 croissant

– 1 egg

– 1 shortcut bacon rasher

– 2 tbsp finely grated cheddar

– Chopped fresh chives, to serve

4 Method / Steps

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Use a sharp knife to cut the top section off the croissant. Scoop out some of the insides to make a cavity.

Step 2

Place the croissant on a piece of foil. Fold up the foil to cover all but the cavity. Place on a baking tray. Break the egg into the cavity. Bake for 18 minutes or until the egg is almost set.

Step 3

Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Step 4

Remove croissant from foil. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for a further 2 minutes or until cheese melts and egg is just cooked through. Serve sprinkled with bacon and chives.
