1. Baked Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

I’m a big fan of croissants, but I also love their versatility.

You can use them as sandwich bread, a sweet treat, and even as a crust to your potatoes.

That said, it’s hard not to like these breakfast sandwiches.

They have soft buttery croissants with everything you could want in the perfect combination of flavors.

The best part is that this recipe only calls for two ingredients – eggs and ham.

Once you make it once, you’re hooked!

This low-carb breakfast is perfect if you want something sweet but don’t want to give up your beloved ham.

Top off these heavenly danish sandwiches with a fresh fruit compote or drizzle them with honey.

I do skip the glaze here because the pastry isn’t super buttery.
