Ingredients used

  • 2 slices of smoked ham
  • 2 slices of brie cheese
  • 1 poached egg
  • 2 Tbsp hollandaise sauce
  • Micro greens for garnish


  • STEP 1

    An hour in advance of making the Croffle, remove the Perfect Croissant from the freezer, place on a parchment line baking sheet, cover and allow to fully thaw in the refrigerator.

  • STEP 2

    Once the croissant has thawed, remove from the refrigerator, and cut in half lengthwise using a serrated knife. Don’t worry, the cut doesn’t have to be perfect.

  • STEP 3

    Pre-heat the waffle iron on medium-low heat.

  • STEP 4

    Layer the inside of the croissant with one slice of brie, 2 slices of ham, and finish with the last slice of brie. Place the top half of the croissant on-top.

  • STEP 5

    As soon as the waffle iron has heated, place the Croffle inside the iron and press down. Bake for 4-6 minutes, depending on the waffle iron.

  • STEP 6

    Once the Croffle is golden brown, remove from the waffle iron, place a poached egg on top, spoon 1-2 tablespoons of hollandaise over-top the poached egg, garnish with micro greens and serve while warm.

Chef's tip

Keep the croissant chilled until ready to cut in half. Croissant can be thawed up to 4 hours in advance. Each waffle iron performs differently so be mindful of temperature and timing for the one you are using.
