Croissant Egg Sandwiches with Honey-Mint Fruit Salad

Serves 4

Adapted from Entertain and Celebrate: Easter 2019

Ingredients for Sandwiches:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 Croissants
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • Handful of spinach leaves
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked until crispy

Ingredients for Fruit Salad:

  • 16 oz. container strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 oranges, peel removed and segmented
  • 2 grapefruit, peel removed and segmented
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint

Directions:

  1. For the fruit salad, combine strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit segments in a decorative bowl. Drizzle with the honey and stir in the fresh mint. Set aside. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, Parmesan, parsley, chives, and salt and pepper, to taste. Slice the croissants horizontally and spread mayo mixture evenly over top and bottom half of the croissants. Layer the spinach leaves on the bottom half of the croissants. 
  3. In a non-stick omelet pan, heat the butter over medium high heat. Add the whisked eggs and cook until the eggs begin to set on the bottom, about 2 minutes. With a spatula, loosen the eggs around the edges and swirl the pan. Once the top just begins to set, fold one edge of the omelet over onto itself. Then, fold the other edge of the omelet into the center to make a perfect little envelope. Allow to cook on med-low heat until the center is cooked through. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and cut into four slices.
    1. Cooking note: I don’t add any seasoning to the eggs prior to cooking. I have found that the addition of salt to the egg mixture makes for tough eggs, so I add salt and pepper after the eggs are finished cooking. 
  4. Place the slices of omelet on top of the spinach, then top with the crispy bacon, and cover with the top half of the croissant. Serve with fruit salad and enjoy!
