This gloriously indulgent prosciutto & gouda Croissant sandwich is taken to a whole new level with my game changing honey mustard glaze! Words can’t convey how ridiculously easy they are to make and yet how seriously impressive the outcome. It must be the most glorified ‘ham & cheese’ sandwich EVER but it can be made in minutes and put a smile on everyone’s face. That’s a powerful sandwich recipe to have in your arsenal! I love how versatile croissants are and the fact you can enjoy them at any time of day. Feel the same way? You should totally check out my scrambled egg croissant recipe too!

I bet you think I’ve got shares in honey mustard but I can assure you I haven’t, I just really love it! Once I find an ingredient that I completely fall in love with, I feel like I need to see just how many ways I can utilise it. It’s a bit like when I discovered Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract. It’s now in almost EVERYTHING I bake! When it comes to ingredients, quality far supersedes quantity and a little usually goes a very long way. The very same is true of honey mustard – you don’t need a lot to make any dish taste absolutely incredible.

As for croissants, I eat a lot of them. I actually wish I had shares in them as I’d literally be making myself rich! Every bakery/shop has there own style of croissant but my absolute favourite (other than homemade) are from the bakery section in Lidl near where I live. You only need to take one look at them and the lamination (layers) is so tempting and hypnotizing! You just have to eat them.

The thought of turning all my favourite ingredients into an incredibly easy croissant sandwich recipe got me very excited and the end result was better than I’d dared to hope. This is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or tea and would be perfect for large gatherings too. You can simply fill the croissants quickly beforehand then glaze and bake while your guests are there. (Which will take you all of 5 minutes!) Whether it’s just for you or a big group, these wonderful savoury delights are guaranteed to make tummies happy!

Top Tips for Making the Perfect Croissant Sandwich Every Time

  • When buying your ingredients, get the best you can afford. This may seem really obvious but with recipes like this there’s nowhere to hide. Let your ingredients speak for themselves!
  • Try to bake right before eating. They get cold quite quickly and, if you let them sit for too long, they may even go a little soggy. Not ideal!
  • Don’t be shy with that glaze! Give each croissant a really generous basting – it all adds up to a wonderful flavour.
  • If you’re going to substitute the gouda cheese with another, don’t use one that spreads too much when it melts. You want it to stay a ‘sandwich’ not turn into a hot gooey mess that’s difficult to pick up and eat.
  • May favourite ultra lazy tip? Line your baking tray with foil to avoid washing more pots than necessary!

The Ultimate Croissant Sandwich Recipe

Here is what you will need to serve 2 people.

  • 2 Large Croissants
  • 2-3 Slices of Gouda Cheese
  • 2 Large/4 Small Slices of Prosciutto
  • 1 tsp Honey Mustard
  • 3 tsp Olive Oil

 

Essential Equipment

  • Baking Tray
  • Pastry Brush

 

Start by preheating your oven to 190°C/Fan 180°C.

Carefully slice your croissants in half lengthways and lay in a slice of gouda. If it’s too big, just slice it in half. Don’t worry if it pokes out a bit, it all adds to the appeal!

Now add a slice of prosciutto on top of the cheese.

Just look at the gooey melted cheese, the beautiful prosciutto and that glaaaaazzzee! It’s literally making me hungry just looking at those pictures again. You could totally mix up the flavours too if you wanted. Maybe switch out the gouda & prosciutto for mozzarella & pepperoni then glaze with garlic olive oil and a sprinkling of oregano… throw in a little tomato passata too and you’ve got yourself an incredible ‘pizza croissant sandwich’! Wow – I’m totally gonna do that myself even if you don’t!
