It has been such a nice weekend. I visited my swimming pool for the first time this season and it was so nice and relaxing. Then, I cleaned my house really well and pretty much ate popsicles the rest of the day. I would have made myself some Frothy Sunrise Punch, but I didn't have any orange juice on hand.
But . . . now I am HUNGRY. This sandwich is exactly what I want right now. Croissants have got to be one of the best things ever created and when you bake them, they get EVEN BETTER. It's true, check out these Baked Ham and Cheese Croissants to see why :)
This Croissant Melt really is so DANG GOOD. Hello . . . it has ham, turkey crunchy bacon, Pepper Jack cheese and honey mustard, all served on a buttery, flaky, croissant. Add an egg and make it a breakfast sandwich. To-die-for!
You might just find yourself making these on a weekly basis.
Ham, Turkey and Bacon Croissant MeltsFrom: Jenn@eatcakefordinner
(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)
4 large croissants
1/2 lb. deli ham, sliced thin
1/2 lb. deli turkey, sliced thin
8 slices bacon, cooked
4 big slices Pepper Jack cheese
1/3 c. Mayonnaise (I use light)
1 Tbl. mustard
1 Tbl. Dijon mustard
1 Tbl. honey
1/2 Tbl. fresh lemon juice
a few dashes of Worcestershire, opt.
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice croissants in half. Spread honey mustard on each half. Top the bottom half of each croissant with a few slices of deli ham, deli turkey, two slices of bacon and a slice of cheese. Cover with tops and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and croissant is slightly toasted. Serves: 4
For the Honey Mustard: Stir together all ingredients. Taste and adjust ingredients, if needed.
Jenn's Notes: I used Black Forest ham and Cajun turkey.
