ghMumika bought croissants before she left. Bryan looked at them and said, “These would taste really good with ham and swiss cheese”. Both of which, we had.
The man does not like ham. Don’t buy him ham to make sandwiches, he won’t use it. Yet, croissants are ok. I don’t get it.
Originally, I wanted to make those rolls with cheese and ham and that sauce that you either brush on the tops or put inside.
“Meh,” Bryan replied, “Just ham and swiss.”
Which I did.
The best thing about this is it is literally 3 ingredients. And you can make as many as you want.
Ham and Swiss Cheese Croissant
4 regular croissant, sliced horizontally in half
16 slices of ham
8 slices of swiss cheese
Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
Place 4 slices of ham on the bottom half of the croissant.
Place 2 slices of Swiss cheese on top of the ham.
Place the top of the croissant on the cheese.
Bake at 350 for 10 minute or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
This is perfect for a brunch or a late breakfast. Paired with fruit. I might do a play on eggs benedict with this one day. Why didn’t I do that? Didn’t think of it until now. As usual.
Actually, this is perfect for any time of day, but that’s besides the point.
I used honey ham which I found complimented the swiss cheese quite well. Add the flaky butteryness of the croissant and you have something perfectly amazing.
If you cut it into bite size pieces, it would be a great appetizer for a bridal or baby shower. If you are making it for a baby shower, I would use baby swiss if you are having a baby tea time theme.
Why is Swiss cheese so amazing?!?! It’s definitely one of my favorite cheese. It’s up there with muenster and Havarti.
