Taking breakfast up a notch with these Ham, Cheese & Thyme Omelete-Stuffed Croissants! My vegan frittata batter (no eggs means even easier clean-up and allergen-friendly!) mixed with veggie ham (I used Yves brand, super easy to find at grocery stores), fresh thyme, onion and topped with your favourite dairy-free cheese. Then, its baked inside hollowed out croissants.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…
Where do I get vegan croissants?
I found vegan croissants at The Bread Lounge here in Halifax. To say I was excited is an understatement… I was absolutely giddy with excitement. Because they are SO good! If you don’t have a bakery that makes vegan croissants near by, don’t sweat it. You can substitute any similarly sized type of bread roll.
Is this recipe difficult?
These look so fancy, and honestly taste like a fancy restaurant brunch menu item. But they could not be any easier (or more fun!) to make! This is a great one to involve your kids with if they are into cooking. I always loved helping out in the kitchen when I was younger and this recipe would have been so extra special and fun to me!
Basically, you whisk together the batter and add in the ham, onion & thyme (or whatever mix-ins you want to use). Then, slice a thin slice off the top of the croissant, and hollow out the inside by carefully ripping chunks of the middle out. I pretty much just ate the middles as I went, haha!
Then, spoon the batter into the middles, top with cheese and bake! I was so happy with how well these turned out and I know you will love them too.Print
