We love making this flaky Croissant Breakfast Sandwich! Fluffy bakery croissants are topped with bacon, egg, and cheese and toasted to perfection! Double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as needed to feed your crew!
Preheat oven or toaster oven (my fav!) to 350°F. If you prefer to not toast your croisant, feel free to skip this step.
Slice croissant in half and set aside.
Next cook bacon via your favorite method until crispy. Microwave, stovetop, and oven methods all work great.
While the bacon cooks, pan fry your egg(s) or scramble until fluffy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
For cirspy fried eggs, heat a large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat with a little oil or butter. Crack your eggs into a small bowl, then pour into the pan, separate from one another. Cook for a few minutes until your idea of drippy egg perfection is reached. Covering the pan halfway through cooking (after about a minute or two) helps cook the top of the egg and is my go-to technique for a perfect fried egg.
Place bottom slice of croissant down on a small baking sheet (or a large one if you're making a bunch of breakfast sandwiches) and top with your egg(s). Add bacon, cheese, optional spinach, and top slice of croissant.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the croissant is toasty and the cheese has melted. Enjoy!
MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS:
Make sandwiches via the recipe card below. After allowing to cool to room temperature (you can pop them in the fridge to cool down if needed) wrap individually in parchment paper and place in a freezer-safe baggie. Freeze for up to one month.
Reheat by removing parchment and wrapping in a paper towel. Microwave for 60 seconds or until heated through.
If storing in the fridge, reheat by baking in the oven or toaster oven. Line a baking sheet with your parchment paper from the sandwich and bake at 350 degrees F until cooked through, approx. 10-15 minutes.
Cook time will vary based on egg/bacon cooking method chosen. Prep time will depend on sandwich quantity.
