#ad These Easy Bacon Croissants topped with a Parmesan and herb topping are a tasty option for busy morning’s breakfast, especially when paired with eggs.
In keeping with my current goal to make breakfast for my kiddos every morning I’ve been trying to find ways to keep the morning simple while still giving them something interesting to eat. They love croissants and biscuits so it’s always fun to try to come up with a new version to give them. Combining a croissant with bacon, or turkey bacon in this particular case, with some Parmesan and herbs was a big hit with my kiddos. They told me multiple times how much they liked them.
These bacon croissants are really easy to make in the morning or you can make a bunch of them up ahead of time and microwave them briefly as you need them. You could even make up some of the Spinach Feta Breakfast Croissants so you have a variety of options.
All you need to do is take slices of cooked bacon, roll them up in croissant triangles, and top them with a buttery tasting spread and Parmesan cheese and herbs. Even my husband was impressed with how fast these came together! I used Gold n’ Soft spread instead of butter because it has the great taste of butter and is easily spreadable right out of the fridge with no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils and zero trans fats per serving. On busy (early) mornings I don’t always remember to pull butter out ahead of time and all that so having the spread option is really convenient.
I grew up using Gold n’ Soft spread so it’s a bit nostalgic for me seeing it in the fridge. The Gold n’ Soft spread which comes in a nifty square tub in a cute little size. I love that it’s square so it fits nicely in my fridge and the 15 ounce size is convenient for small families or for those of us where fridge space is precious and you don’t want condiments taking up the bulk of that.
Make sure to check out the Gold n’ Soft inspiration page for lots of great recipes and ways to use the spread!
At my Kroger affiliate, Ralph’s the Gold n’ Soft spread is located in the dairy aisle with the other spreads and butter tubs.
