Ingredients used

  • 1 tbsp softened butter
  • 2 slices croissant loaf
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1-2 lettuce leaves
  • 2 slices tomato
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 folded egg omelette (or any style of cooked egg you may prefer)
  • 2-3 slices Oka original cheese
  • 3-4 strips thick cut maple bacon


  • STEP 1

    Allow the croissants to completely thaw at room temperature (45-60 mins). Pre-heat your oven to 345ºF and set the fan speed to low or 40%. Brush the inside of the pan with the softened butter, taking extra care to get into the corners and edges of the pan.

  • STEP 2

    Bend the ends of the thawed croissant underneath its body, and place into the loaf pan. The croissant should be “standing up”. Repeat with the 4 remaining croissants until the pan has been filled.

  • STEP 3

    Bake the loaf for approximately 30-45 mins. Pay close attention to the colouration on the top of the loaf. If it is browning too quickly, lightly cover with foil.

  • STEP 4

    Once fully baked, cool for 10-15 mins and then remove the loaf from the pan and set onto a cooling rack. Cool loaf for approx. 1 hr before slicing.

  • STEP 5

    Butter and grill 1 side of each slice of the croissant loaf until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

  • STEP 6

    Mix the mayonnaise and maple syrup. Add more or less maple syrup to your taste. Set aside.

  • STEP 7

    Build the sandwich by layering the lettuce, the tomato (add salt and pepper to taste), the egg omelette, the Oka cheese and the bacon. Top with the remaining slice of croissant loaf. Wrap in parchment paper to create a hand-held sandwich and finish by drizzling with the maple mayonnaise.

Chef's tip

Use a 1- 1 pound loaf pan (8.8”x 4.8” x 2.8”).

The croissants can be placed in the fridge (covered) to thaw overnight.

The croissant loaf can be made a day in advance. This will allow for easier slicing.
