Featuring a flaky croissant bun filled with creamy avocado, melty cheddar cheese, and perfectly scrambled eggs, this sandwich is a surefire way to start your day off on the right foot.

Whether you’re a vegetarian or simply looking to switch up your breakfast routine, this breakfast sandwich is sure to be a hit.
For a light and refreshing option, a side of fresh fruit like berries or sliced mango would be perfect.

Remember to season the avocado after mashing it with a fork. If it is looking a little overripe, add a little bit of lime juice to liven it up and prevent it from browning.

How To Make a Vegetarian Croissant Sandwich
Whisk your eggs: In a small bowl, add your eggs, salt, and pepper and whisk using a fork until aerated. Once ready, set aside.
Cook your eggs: Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Add oil followed by eggs. Cook until a light skin forms. Add cheddar cheese. This is very similar to making an omelette, except this is a lot more forgiving as you’re just trying to melt the cheese and cook the eggs without risking it breaking when you flip it.
Fold and remove: Once cooked, begin folding your egg to match the shape of the croissant bread and remove it from the pan.
Assemble your croissant sandwich: Slice your croissant sandwich bread in half and begin assembling your sandwich. Add the egg mixture and hot sauce on the bottom half. On the top half, add avocado chunks and smooth out with a fork until evenly spread. Add salt and pepper to season.
Add remaining toppings and serve: Add the remaining ingredients on top of the egg, place the top part of the sandwich to cover, and serve!
Can I add a sauce?
Of course! A sauce can go great with this as long as it doesn’t overpower the avocado. Mayo-based sauces are great with this, or even a spread like a marmalade, almond butter, and quince can also work as well.
Are croissant and egg sandwiches healthy?
Croissants are high in fat because of their butter content, so it’s best to balance out the high cholesterol with fresh ingredients like avocado and greens.
