I love a good sandwich, especially these amazingly delicious and super easy Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches.

It is a comforting breakfast or you may eat it for brunch. Well, we prep it many times even for dinner. Wouldn’t you agree that sometimes breakfast for dinner hits the spot?

Just the other day before my oldest son, Aleks, went to work I made these sandwiches for him.

It was a perfect meal to keep him full until lunchtime. He is on the winter break so he is home from college for one more week.

I like spoiling my kids with good homemade food. To be honest, I think I just love feeding people.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

So, if you into making your own croissant, be my guest and made that buttery pastry. However, you can pretty much get them these days in any grocery store bakery.

I got a boxful of smaller or mini Croissant from Kroger’s brand private selection. They were great for these sandwiches. Additionally, it saves you so much time.

Anyhow, I do have many sandwich recipes so my blog that I know you will love. I must recommend one of my favourites, which is similar to this one just by using bagel.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Brunch Bagel Sandwich – egg, bacon, cheese, avocado and lettuce.

Saying that I love bagels is an understatement. I really enjoy nice bagels sandwiches and my family is exactly the same.

I know perfectly well that this sandwich is nothing new, but I wanted to have it on my blog as an idea.

You know when you come and search for sandwiches and you see these beauties. You instantly know that you are craving it.

Scramble some eggs, crisp up your bacon in the air fryer, add a few slices of cheese and you got yourself an amazing breakfast meal.

Recipe
Yield: 1 Serving

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches are a perfect breakfast or brunch meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of hardwood bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Pinch of salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chives, optional
  • 2 oz mild cheddar cheese, or any on hand
  • 2 small croissants or one larger.

Instructions

  1. Place bacon in the air fryer and crip it up for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on your taste, at 360 degrees Fahrenheit. You may also use bacon pre-set temperature on your air fryer. For oven baking: place bacon in the baking pan and bake for about 15 minutes at 350F or until it is crispy to your desire. *If you are baking in the oven, do not toss those drippings. Save them and you may make potatoes or chicken in it. So good!
  2. Meanwhile, make eggs. Crack two eggs in the cup and add salt, pepper and chives which are optional. Mix until the eggs are smooth. Preheat your skillet or frying pan with a dab of butter and at the lower temperature cook eggs. You could make something like an omelette and fold with cheese before adding to your sandwich or you may make scrambled eggs and toss some cheese on top to melt. You have both useful methods below.
  3. Now, open your Croissant just by slicing in half.
  4. Add cheese eggs then slices of bacon on top.
  5. You may heat it all together in the air fryer, microwave or oven for a couple of minutes or until Croissants are softer. Enjoy!

If you are heating sandwich in the air-fryer, use temp of 350F for 3-4 minutes. The time and results will depend on your air fryer.

If you are heating sandwich in the microwave, you will heat it for 20-30 seconds. The time and results will depend on your microwave.

If you are heating sandwich in the oven, you could preheat the oven to 375F, cover sandwiches with alum foil or similar and allow it to get sandwiches heated through for about 5-7 minutes. The time and results will depend on your oven.

Creamy scrambled eggs:

  1. The moment the eggs hit the pan, use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to rapidly swirl in small circles around the pan until the eggs look slightly thickened and very small curds begin to form.
  2. Then try changing from swirling in circles to making long sweeps across the pan so it could cook into larger curds. You may add a bit of shredded cheese on top and before adding in the sandwich.


Cheesy Omelette:

  1. Once the pan is hot, pour in the combined mixture in the pan. Use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to gently move cooked egg in from the edge of the pan to the middle, creating curds.
  2. Slightly tilt a skillet or a pan and rotate to make sure that any uncooked egg fills in any empty spaces that you just pulled in the middle.
  3. When the surface of the egg looks wet but does not jiggle or look too uncooked when the pan is shaken, it is ready for the cheese or any other filling.
  4. Add cheese on one side and fold the omelette in half with a spatula.
  5. Slice in half and you can use one half of the sliced omelette for each sandwich.

Notes

Double or triple the ingredients if you going to make more than one serving. Salt and black pepper technically you will only need a generous pinch of both.

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich Recipe

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich.

Also, better known as Croque-Monsieur Sandwich. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch.

My favourite way to eat a croque-madame is with a little sunny-side-up egg on top, with a drizzle of hot sauce!

With that being said, you should also try a “Croque Mademoiselle” which is a vegetarian version with cucumber or zucchini and chives.

I genuinely feel like this sandwich instantly transports you back to a French café or charming bistro, where you may have ordered it while sipping on a café au lait.

You may know this sandwich in the USA as a Monte Cristo Sandwich. Nevertheless, it is delicious whatever you call it.

My husband and I devoured it because we absolutely love a good sandwich.

Especially with premium carved cuts of high-quality meats like Hillshire Farm® Premium Carved Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham.

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich Recipe

I partnered with Hillshire Farm to make something very delicious using their Premium Carved Meats.

We used Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham to make this delicious sammie.

So, I took a trip to Walmart and located the packaged lunch meat in the perimeter coolers.

There, I found Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Oven Roasted Turkey Breast. As well as Hillshire Farm Premium Carved Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast.

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich, better known as Croque-Monsieur. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch.

Ingredients

Bechamel Sauce

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter reserve 1/2 tbsp for buttering the bread
  • 1 1/2-2 tablespoon/s All-purpose flour substitute 1/4 tbsp Guar gum
  • 2-2 1/2 cups Whole milk
  • 3 ounces Gruyère Cheese, grated substitute with Swiss Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 Sprigs of Thyme steam removed

Sandwich ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon Melted Unsalted Butter reserved from Bechamel Sauce)
  • 8 slices Sandwich Bread preferably rustic, or traditional Brioche toast
  • 8 slices Hillshire Farm® Premium Carved Meat, I used Ham
  • 8-10 ounces Gruyère Cheese, grated substitute with Swiss Cheese (aged)

Garnish:

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives or green onions

Instructions

Shread/Grate the cheeses; Gruyère Cheese and Swiss Cheese. You may use more or less, but I think this is a perfect amount. I like shredding my own cheese and it melts even better when you do it. 

Bechamel Sauce:

  1. Melt the butter over low heat in a small saucepan and add the flour all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Add milk; bring to a simmer.
  2. Cook, whisking frequently, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the salt, pepper, grated Gruyere, and the Swiss and set aside.

Toasting

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in bottom third. Place 8 bread slices on the baking sheet, butter each toast with unsalted butter, then toast for a couple of minutes.
  2. After the toast slices are nicely golden take it out of the oven. Just to note that you can toast bread in a large toaster or conventional oven as well if that saves you time.

Sandwich Assembly

  1. Top each with half with bechamel sauce, about 1 tablespoon equally spread, then add slices of the ham and shredded Gruyère. Top with remaining bread.
  2. On the very top of each sandwich add about 1 more tablespoon of the Bechamel sauce and generous amount of shredded Gruyère.
  3. Turn the oven broiler on high and transfer the baking sheet with sandwiches in the oven. Broil until the top of the sandwiches with bechamel sauce and cheese begins to bubble, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Slice in half and enjoy

Notes

For Croque-Madame add a fried sunny side up egg on the top and serve.

  • For Croque-Madame, add a fried sunny-side-up egg on top and serve.
  • Gruyère cheese is one of the finest Swiss cheeses. Its taste is nutty and salty when new but varies greatly with age. Since it can be quite pricy, you can substitute with regular Swiss cheese.

Recipe for Sausages and Sauerkraut Hoagie

The best part of summer is spending time with your family and friends. I am a foodie if you could not tell that before.

These Smoked Smithfield Craft Collection Yuengling Traditional Bratwurst and Sauerkraut Hoagie are absolutely amazing.

Nothing could make me happier during hot summer days than good old BBQ, smoked sausages, grilled steak, etc. The list is pretty much endless.

Anything that’s coming from my grill or smoker is like the best thing in the world to me.

Bratwurst and Sauerkraut Hoagie

My family and I spend so much time outside during summer break grilling, and I assume many other families do the same.

Today I am sharing the best way to prepare Smithfield® Craft Collection™ Yuengling® Traditional Bratwurst.

 Sauerkraut

They are smoked to perfection with Mesquite flavor of the pallets, then topped with sauerkraut (also cooked in my smoker in an iron skillet), then placed in a warmly toasted hoagie.

I mean can I hear you cheer, please? These were the bomb. My family couldn’t stop eating them and I am doing it next weekend because they keep asking for more. Who am I to say no, right?!

I was overwhelmed with the flavor in a good way; as well as the texture and overall perfection of the bratwurst.

Smoked Smithfield Craft Collection Yuengling Traditional Bratwurst and Sauerkraut Hoagie Recipe

My husband, who by the way lived for quite some time in Germany, can say that these are LEGIT and are really darn good sausages.

The Smithfield bratwursts are infused with real Yuengling Traditional Lager, are made with premium cuts of pork and a special blend of sweet and savory spices and no MSG.

It has roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and pairs great with grilled food. I mean beer and brats are the perfect pairings, don’t you agree?

Yuengling beer is from America’s oldest craft brewery and it has an amazingly rich amber color.

Craft Collection Yuengling Traditional Bratwurst and Sauerkraut Hoagie

As I stated above, Yuengling is America’s oldest craft brewery, which is located in Pottsville, PA, and Smithfield is located in Smithfield, VA. You guessed it right, it is the ham capital of the world.

Both come from towns with a slower, more thoughtful pace – grounded in tradition with pride for their heritage.

With that heritage comes an appreciation for quality, flavor, and family. Well, if you ask me, my friends, that makes Smithfield & Yuengling the perfect pair.

Craft Collection Yuengling Beer

Yuengling Lager beer complements these sausages perfectly, especially with some smoked sauerkraut.

If you like cold beer, smoked sausage, and the sauerkraut in a toasted hoagie, then head over to Kroger and get yourself ready for an amazing summer cookout.

You want to be a King or a Queen of your neighborhood this summer and I am telling you it cannot get any better than this.

With 4th of July around the corner, NASCAR and football as well, these would make you the best party host. You can thank me later!

Please let me know, what is your favorite way to prep your bratwurst? Do you cook it in the beer before grilling or does it go straight on the grill?

We love them either way and leftovers, if I have any, are amazing for breakfast with some eggs.

You can find Smithfield Yuengling Bratwurst at your local Kroger.

Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

The best part of summer is spending time with your family and friends. I am a foodie, if you couldn’t tell that before, and nothing could make me happier during hot summer days than good ole BBQ, smoked sausages, grilled steak, and the list is pretty much endless.

Ingredients

  • 2 packs Smithfield Craft Collection Yuengling Traditional Bratwurst
  • 1 jar Sauerkraut
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • 3 Cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • Hoagie Bread Buns

Instructions

  1. Place the bratwurst on the grill.
  2. For the best results, cook on the lower temperature, between 300 and 350°F, for about 10 minutes on one side and 10 minutes on the other.
  3. Close the lid and allow the bratwurst to smoke for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. The internal temperature of the bratwurst should be 160°F.
  5. While the bratwurst are grilling, prepare sauerkraut.
  6. Heat up the iron skillet and sauté minced garlic on the drizzle of oil.
  7. Add sauerkraut and sauté for a couple of minutes. Let it cook on the grill for 10 minutes, then close the grill and smoke it for additional 10 minutes. Add a few pinches of ground black pepper. I like to cook sauerkraut just in time for when I need to smoke bratwursts, so they are both done at the same time.
  8. Last but not least, open up the hoagies and grill them for a minute or until you get nice grill marks.
  9. Serve immediately.

Please, drink and eat responsibly!
