You guys.... today we take buttery, flaky croissants and fill them with soft cooked scrambled eggs, thinly sliced deli ham and cheddar cheese.
We then press them in a hot waffle iron!!
What the WHAT???
Godiva cafe in New york has an item on the menu called "CROIFFLES". It is a croissant with different fillings (which includes both sweet and savory ones) then cooked in a waffle iron. GENIUS, right? Wish I had come up with this idea.
Thankfully, GODiva did!!!
Remember these popular bakery mashup creations:
CRONUTS = Croissant + Donuts
BROOKIES = Brownie + Cookies
DAGEL = Doughnut + Bagel
and now, CROIFFLES = Croissant + Waffles

So, how to make breakfast croissant sandwich recipe?
Taking inspiration from the croiffle, we make a regular breakfast croissant sandwich with scrambled eggs, ham and cheese. But, instead of baking them we smash them in a waffle iron.
Sure, some (or should I say most) of the flaky croissant layers are lost. But, in turn it just makes a crispy, buttery ( not to mention...perfectly hand held) hot, cheesy sandwich.
Next time you make your homemade breakfast croissant sandwich, please give this waffle method a try.
