Naughty and Nice Breakfast Croissant

December 23, 2013

It’s alright if you weren’t totally on Santa’s nice list this year. This “redneck breakfast” croissant combines good ingredients with a few naughty elements. Get swept up by buttery layered pastry, gooey cheese and runny egg yolk dripping into fried corned beef hash.

Redneck Breakfast on a Croissant
Submitted by The Kitchen Witch

1 croissant
1/4 cup canned corned beef hash
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon butter
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Split the croissant in half and toast. Heat a non stick pan over medium high heat, add the corned beef hash. Cook the has until it is brown and crisp on one side (3 to 5 minutes), then flip with a turner and cook the other side until it is crisps and browns, another 3 to 5 minutes. Note: While cooking the has push it together and flatten it so it makes a little patty, it’s much easier to flip and serve that way. Place the corned beef hash patty on the bottom half of the toasted croissant.

In the same pan, melt the butter and add the egg, fry according to taste. Sprinkle the egg with a little salt and pepper and place on top of the corned beef hash patty. On the top side of the croissant, squeeze a layer of canned cheese over it. Place the top layer over the bottom half. Serve immediately.
