Freezer Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

Prep for the week with these make-ahead sandwiches for those busy mornings! Filling, delicious and microwavable!

It is day 2 here in Copenhagen!

I have lost all feelings of my fingers and toes, and the color of my nose is worse than Rudolph.

The architecture here is absolutely breathtakingly stunning.

And the pastries!

They’re pretty stinking amazing too.

That’s all I’ve been eating.

That and scrambled eggs and salmon.

Today we are headed to Tivoli Gardens.

An amusement park right in the center of town.

And a cup of varm gløgg in hand.

It’s basically their version of mulled wine.

In 30-40 degree weather

Which is the best kind of combination, really.

But what I really need with a glass of varm gløgg is this.

Mini, adorable ham, egg and cheese croissant sandwiches.

Because they’re just so cute.

Freezer Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Prep for the week with these make-ahead sandwiches for those busy mornings! Filling, delicious and microwavable!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 mini croissants, halved horizontally
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced ham
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese, halved


  1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add eggs to the skillet and cook, whisking, until they just begin to set. Gently whisk in half and half; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes; set aside.
  2. Fill croissants with eggs, ham and cheese to make 8 sandwiches. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
  3. To reheat, remove plastic wrap from the frozen sandwich and wrap in a paper towel. Place into microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through completely.
  4. Serve immediately.

It’s the wrong time of year, but you might also try a gammeldags ice cream cone!

Great idea. You’re making me so hungry. I love croissants, just don’t eat them as much as I’d like to. Copenhagen looks amazing.

Your timing is amazing!!
Just yesterday, on a whim, I picked up a sack of butter croissants at Trader Joe’s.. These will be Friday mornings breakfast… :O)

What a fun idea! Do you think I could follow this recipe and use cooked turkey bacon instead of ham, or would I need to tweak this a bit? 🙂 thank you!!

Yum! perfect breakfast meal prep

Your photo looks like you heated and toasted them in the oven, rather than reheating in microwave. Is that if you’re serving a bunch right away (like a brunch/breakfast for a crowd) ? Or did you toast them in oven, then cool, wrap, and freeze them for reheating in microwave later?

You can do either/or!

I see that you are on what is called the Walking Street in front of the Royal Danish porcelain store. What on earth are you doing there in the middle of winter where the days are at best 6 hours long and usually cloudy and/or raining. In the summer, that street is filled with outdoor tables and chairs. The Danes love their food and alcohol.

There is a bakery shop on just about every other corner, usually near a pub and church, and to my way of thinking, they have the best baked breads and pastry in the world. 🙂 It might interest you to know that Danish pastry actually originated in Austria and that the Danes took it and improved on it. And unless it has improved since I left there 30 years ago (I’m American but married a Dane and lived there nearly 30 years) the food in not anywhere near as interesting as yours. Thanks for your fabulous recipes. P.S. Their cheeses are out of this world delicious. It seems each small island (if the 500 or so in Denmark) makes their own cheese. My favorite is from the island of Samsø.

Where do you buy your mini-croissants?
They look good!
