Ingredients

  • 8 croissants (small or medium)
  • 4 eggs
  • 4-6 egg whites
  • 4 tbsp milk (or double cream)
  • 3 tbsp ricotta cheese (or Philadelphia cheese)
  • 1 knob butter (small) or 1/2 tsp of coconut oil
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 4-5 springs chives (chopped) to garnish

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl beat the eggs with the egg whites, the milk/double cream, the cheese (ricotta or Philadelphia) and the salt and pepper to taste. Beat this for a good minute or two until the cheese gets pretty homogenised although you might see little lumps but that's perfectly okay. You could add half of the chopped chives too.
  • Cut the croissants in half (lengthways) but not all the way to the other side so they'll be like nice pockets holding the scrambled eggs in.
  • Place a frying pan over medium heat. Add the butter or the coconut oil.
  • Add the egg mixture and cook on medium heat stirring while the eggs begins to scramble. Carry on this for a good 4 minutes or more depending on how you like your scrambled eggs.
  • Arrange the croissants on plates and begin to spoon in the scrumbled eggs.
  • Scatter the remaining chives and serve.

Notes

Feel free to sophisticate this by adding some
- cooked mushrooms
- cooked bacon
- smoked salmon
- chorizo sausage
- pine nuts
- sunflower seeds
- red onion
- sun-dried tomatoes
- feta cheese
- grated cheddar cheese
-parsley, coriander or dill
All these can be added to the omelette according to your liking. Whatever you choose to fill this up with try and keep it on the dry side as a soggy filling would not appeal too much - even the scrambled egg I have kept it juices free - but it is absolutely your call ;-). I also use a generous spread of creme cheese directly on the croissant  to hold the egg crumbs together. 
3 scrambled egg croissants
I sometimes add chopped smoked salmon, another time it's bacon or chorizo or sometimes it's pure plain omelette.
Enjoy! It's yumm yumm yumm!?????
Bon appétit!
