What do you put on yours?

I like ham and cheese, or strawberry jam with choc chips.

Must be done in the oven. Never in the microwave or cold.

Oh and oven only for me as well, lol.

Plain with maple syrup. I've never got ham and cheese croissants.

I think they are good enough to eat just as they are, no need to add anything.

I rarely have them but when I do it has to be proper strawberry jam mixed with chopped strawberries and if I am feeling really decadent, some thick cream.

Served with jam on the side, so you can put some on each mouthful. Very decadent, very delicious.

These are surprisingly nice, although come second to the boutique pear and vanilla bean jam I discovered last year.

Organic butter and home made jam.  
Dunked in an oversized cup of proper hot chocolate.

Plain. Must be light and crispy (for Melbournites check out Loafer Bread in North Fitzroy for the towns best croissants). Dipped in coffee.

Oven only.

I like a good ham and cheese one OR a jammy one equally.. (and yes as Puggle says jam 'on the side')


The worst one ever?

When I was a little girl and desperate for 'egg and soldiers' for my breakfast after several weeks of 'continental' breakfasts...
Mum had managed to (she thought) explain to the waitress at our hotel what that was.... alas when it arrived Mum had managed in her rusty French to order me a soft boiled egg...... and a croissant!

People are going to think I'm weird after I put this out there, but I love vegemite with a little butter on croissants. I have since I was little, and can't imagine ever changing. Oh, and heated in the oven so it's nice and warm and flakey original.gif  I do also like them with jam or ham and cheese, but vegemite is my first choice.

ham & cheese, sometimes with a little mustard
mushroom & cheese, again, sometimes with a little mustard
ham, cheese & mushroom, sometimes mustard as well
asparagus & cheese
chicken & cheese, sometimes with mushroom or asparagus

my kids like the same as me but my nephew thinks they are great with nutella and sliced banana.

Always served warm and always heated in the oven not the microwave.



Also, thanks for reminding me, I need to get the croissants organised for christmas breakfast (I usually buy them when I see them on clearance, split & fill them then freeze them until christmas eve).  My kids love them!  Our christmas breakfast tradition is ham & cheese croissants, fresh fruit & juice.

Chocolate/Nutella!!
Or just on its own with nothing on it.

#23 Z-girls rock

Posted 07 November 2012 - 01:29 PM

I really only like 'savory' croissants. could not do jam blergh.

I like avocado and cheese in the oven.

#24 Bel Rowley

Butter and my MIL and FIL's homemade jam. Both served on the side to be added to each mouthful as it is broken off the oven-warmed croissant.

I love mine warm and a little crunchy from the oven, then covered in lashings of cream cheese, smoked salmon and some dill.
