Dad's Bacon and Cheese Croissants

Father’s day is just around the corner and there is nothing that will make dad’s around the world smile more than a nice breakfast, a cup of coffee and a hug. I know that was the case for my dad!

I don't live at home anymore and as sad as this may sound I do not remember the last time I spent Father’s day with my dad but I speak to him nearly every day so I try to make up for it!

However, just because he isn’t here it doesn’t mean I can’t have a breakfast fit for a King!
Whether you have these for Father’s day, brunch with friends or breakfast with anyone or even alone, you need to make these, they are so good. They are amazing still warm from the oven but they can be done in advance and warmed up in the oven or the microwave or you could even eat them cold.

Depending on how many people are having breakfast or how hungry you are you can double up the ingredients.

Here is what you need:

1 packet of croissant dough (I use jus rol, but there might be other brands out there)
4-5 rashers smoked bacon, cut in small slices/strips
grated cheese

Cook the bacon strips in a small pan. Once it is cooked, transfer onto a plate with some kitchen paper to absorb the fat and set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment or non-stick foil and set aside.
While the oven is heating up, unroll the first triangle to make the croissant and put it on the baking sheet. You could unroll all the pastry and set it on the baking tray but I always go one by one.
On the package there should be instructions on how to roll the croissant and they can be a bit confusing the first time but it is very easy.
Put some cheese and a few strips of bacon on the widest edge of the triangle dough. All you have to do is roll this edge up, making sure the filling stays inside and keep rolling to make the croissant. The longest bit of the triangle should end on top. Pinch the sides down to the bottom of the dough to close the sides so the filling doesn’t escape when you cook it. Curve the corners a little so it looks like a traditional croissant.
Do the same with all the croissants and egg wash them before putting them in the oven (I used milk as I didn’t have eggs).

Cook in the oven for about 15 min until they are golden.
Let them cool for a few minutes and eat.
