Sweet & Savoury Filled Croissants

This is not so much a recipe but  just a simple way of jazzing up a plain croissant dough. Having woken up late today it was nearer to lunch time than breakfast so I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to try out my idea for Cheese and Ham and Almond Croissants. What could be nicer for a spot of brunch or even a packed lunch?

My children wolfed down the Cheese and Ham Croissants and even had a splodge of ketchup to go with them. It was only myself and my husband who liked the Almond Croissants though! The possibilities are endless so I hope I’ve inspired you to have a go with your own fillings!

The photos aren’t great as everyone just wanted to eat them so it was a case of shoot and go!

Unroll your croissants and score along the marked lines.

Savoury Filling: Small strip of ham and grated Emmental

Sweet filling: Strip of marzipan

Roll the croissant dough up towards the point. Top savoury ones with grated cheese.

    Is it okay to place croissants filled with ham & cheese in microwave.

      If it’s a croissant and not the dough then I’d say yes. I used to go to a lovely Italian cafe where they had a croissant style pastry filled with cheese sauce and ham and they would warm them up in the microwave before serving. It does make pastry more “sweaty” than if you heated in the oven though!
