Breakfast Ham and Eggs Cheat

Makes 16 croissants

When you have someone sleep over unexpectedly and want to make something easy for breakfast, have Pillsbury croissants, eggs, ham and cheese in the fridge and you can easily make this breakfast cheat. I call it a cheat because I use premade dough which is so versatile.


1 tbsp olive oil

1 bell pepper, finely chopped

1 tsp Lawry’s garlic salt or salt and pepper to taste

½ cup sliced ham cut into pieces

6 eggs

½ cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese mix

2 pack Pillsbury small croissants

Red pepper jelly (optional)


  1. In a skillet heat oil and sauté pepper and garlic salt for five minutes

  2. Add in ham and sauté until ham turns a little golden

  3. Beat eggs in a bowl and stir in cheese

  4. Add eggs and cheese to pan and scramble the eggs, ham and cheese until cooked

  5. Let mixture cool

  6. Preheat oven to 375°F

  7. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper

  8. Roll out croissants and cut into individual triangles

  9. Add a tablespoon of mixture onto the base of the triangle and tightly roll up to the top

  10. Spread some red pepper jelly on some or all of the croissants to give it a little zing

  11. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden

  12. Serve immediately
