Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 large butter croissants
  • 4 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 6 ounces ham or turkey thinly sliced
  • 6 slices cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs with whole milk.
  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs to the skillet and scramble the eggs, cooking until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Set aside.
  • Prepare the sandwiches. Slice each croissant in half. On one half spread one tablespoon mayonnaise and on the other half spread one teaspoon mustard. Fill each sandwich with egg, ham or turkey, and 1.5 slices of cheese.
  • To bake. Preheat oven to 450 F. Wrap each sandwich in foil and place on a baking sheet. Transfer baking sheet to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  • To freeze. Tightly wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
  • To heat from frozen. Remove the sandwich from the plastic wrap and place in a paper towel on a microwave-safe dish. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. Alternatively, preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove sandwiches from plastic wrap and wrap in foil. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until cheese has fully melted. Enjoy!
