croissant4Breakfast is one of our favorite meals to eat on the weekend so I am always looking for new recipes to try. I came across this one on Pinterest and we tried it out last weekend and it was a hit. First of all, you can’t ever go wrong with croissants and goat cheese in my book. The sandwiches took less than 10 minutes to make and with a side of fruit were the perfect morning meal.

SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH GOAT CHEESE

2 large croissants
2 handfuls rocket leaves
4 large free-range eggs
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp butter
90g goat’s cheese
A few chives, snipped with a scissors, to serve

Slice open the croissants and fill with a generous amount of rocket leaves. Set aside.
In a small non-stick saucepan with a handle, whisk the eggs together until combined. Place the saucepan over a medium-low heat and, using a wooden spoon, slowly pull the eggs towards the centre. Keep the mixture moving until you have really creamy scrambled eggs. Make sure not to overcook the eggs — take them off the heat while they are still slightly runny and creamy.

Season with sea salt and black pepper and stir through the butter and goat’s cheese. Serve in the open croissants with an extra sprinkle of black pepper and a few snips of chives.
