Friday Brunch

Because it’s Friday, breakfast really should be more than a cup of coffee & a slice of toast – actually, it should be more than that most days, but I know what it’s like when you’re dashing around so this is for you.

OK, my husband bakes the most fabulous croissants (hi gorgeous!), but sometimes even I have resorted to shop bought when I needed my French flaky pastry fix! Obviously, get the best you can & they need to be made with real butter too – Friday is not the day for going without!  We like to have these when we have a lazy day, so they’re not just for Fridays.

These are really easy to make – you just need to slice up some French Brie, halve a few croissants, fry up some lean bacon slices & turn on the oven to about 180*C.   Get a baking tray, put some greaseproof paper on it to keep it clean (no washing up either!).

Put a slice of bacon or two in the croissant, add a slice of Brie on top & put the top of the croissant on, then bake in the middle of the oven for about 5-10 minutes.  The Brie will become all oozy, the bacon will crisp up & the croissants will too.

Serve with some lovely scrambled eggs, a big cup of coffee & eat while they’re still warm.
