This warm, melty, gooey, comforting croissant sandwich has been on my mind for weeks. Ever since the thought popped into my brain, I haven’t stopped craving it! I brought it to work today for lunch and was just counting down the minutes until I could eat it. THEY ARE SO GOOD. Does this give you a small peak into my food-obsessed brain? The fact that I was counting down the minutes until lunch while I was at work?
Well…it should. Because I do have a food-obsessed brain. And it’s a problem sometimes. Fo reals.
Sometimes the simple recipes are the best. You use just a few really great, high quality ingredients, don’t mask their flavors, and you end with an easy but delicious meal. These sandwiches are a perfect example of this. All we have here are croissants, ham, Swiss cheese, and the honey mustard sauce (which also only contains a few ingredients).
The key is to use really nice ham and really nice cheese (and really nice croissants if you can find them – I just got mine from the bakery section of the grocery store). We got Boar’s Head ham and Boar’s Head Swiss, aaaaannnddd DROOL they were good.
This sandwich is simple, simple, simple, but MAN is it mouthwatering. I’m in love. Not to mention it’s the easiest meal ever to make. Throw these babies together and make a simple salad while they’re baking away in the oven, and you’ve got yourself a meal! Or you can skip the salad and eat like eleven of these sandwiches each over the kitchen counter, which is what Seth and I did last night…ma B.
As much as I love these sandwiches, I hate the pictures equally as much. Haaaate. I had to take these after work yesterday instead of on a weekend like I usually do. Seth got home super late Thursday night after being in the field for over three weeks, so I wanted to spend my weekend with him and then cook for the blog on Monday (I had off work for President’s Day 👏). But Monday came around, and it was icky and dark and gloomy outside, so it was no bueno for food photography.
So I rushed home after work yesterday and made these and photographed them as quickly as I could. But even with my speediness, it was still too dark in my house, so I had to go outside and take these pictures. Which just made everything all weird and funky. BUT it’s worth it because the recipe is bae….
