How to make breakfast ham and cheese croissant sandwich recipe

Crack 12 eggs into a bowl then add, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Whisk the eggs for a few minutes to introduce some air into them.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large preheated skillet on medium-low heat. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and let the eggs sit undisturbed until the eggs just start to set around the edges, about 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, push the eggs from the edges into the center. Spread the uncooked eggs back into an even layer. Repeat, pushing the set eggs from the edges into the center every 30 seconds until they have almost cooked. This may take 6-8 minutes total.  The top of the eggs should still be slightly wet, they will finish cooking in the oven when you bake the ham and cheese croissant sandwich in the oven. Transfer the eggs to a bowl.

Next, you will make the homemade secret sauce (honey mustard glaze). In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise, 1/2 tablespoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a dash of smoked paprika.

For easier prep, use store-bought croissants. If you want to make croissants from scratch Farmhouse on Boone has an amazing sourdough croissant recipe!

Slice the croissant or crescent rolls in half then spread 1/2 tablespoon on each slice of the homemade honey mustard glaze. Place the glazed croissants on the baking sheet as you go. 

To assemble the sandwich place two slices of ham over the bottom piece of each croissant, a heaping 1/3 cup of scrambled eggs, and half a slice of cheese (you can use sharp cheddar or Swiss cheese) if you are making 6 big croissants, use the whole slice. Place the top half of each croissant over the sandwich.
