In honor of National Croissant Day on January 30, we’ve got some unique MultiChef recipes for breakfast to share with you that all start with just a can of ready-to-bake croissants.
These days, it seems like every day is some random holiday celebrating someone or some food. Being in the foodservice industry we tend to actually pay attention to the latter. And while they don’t all speak to us, I think we can all agree National Croissant Day is something to celebrate. The flaky, layered, soft, airy, chewy, buttery pastry is at the top of the breakfast food chain for many and loved by one and all. I mean, really what’s not to like? So with our mouths already watering, we’ve dug up some really tasty croissant recipes that take the pastry to the next level. Each recipe is geared towards one of the most profitable and growing dayparts: breakfast. So grab a napkin, it’s going to be a flaky ride!
First stop on the croissant crazy train is just a slight variation on the rolls we already know and love. Cinnamon croissant rolls are easy to make and even easier to sell. When your customers smell the cinnamon baking in your MultiChef each morning they’ll be chomping at the bit to get a piece of that action. This recipe comes from The Hungry Housewife, to modify it as a MultiChef recipe simply drop the temperature to 350 and cut the cook time down to 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown. As an added sales incentive, try pairing these as a combo grab-and-go breakfast with coffee. Your customers will love the taste and convenience of this easy to make breakfast treat.
Our next MultiChef recipe is an old standby: cheese danish! These croissant based fruit and cream cheese danishes are as delicious to look at as they are to eat. This original recipe comes from Six Sisters’ Stuff, their site is full of great looking food, but this one in particular is perfect for capturing the morning crowd. Starting with just one tube of ready to bake rolls, cream cheese and a pie filling of your choice, she transforms croissants into its sweet sister, Danish! To modify this into a MultiChef recipe, once again, drop your temp down to 350 and only bake for 7-10 minutes. We also suggest trying this recipe with seasonally available fresh fruit for a limited time offering guests will crave!
Two MultiChef recipes down, both favored those with a sweet tooth, so for our next pick we’re featuring something a bit more savory. These sausage egg muffins couldn’t be easier to make (especially since the MultiChef will cut down the overall cook time!) and they’re SUPER delish. This recipe comes from Play Party Pin, who based it on a popular breakfast casserole you may have had before. Once again the ready to bake croissant rolls start the menu item and it only takes eggs, milk, cheese and sausage to finish off the recipe. To modify this recipe for the MultiChef, high speed oven, we recommend using pre-cooked sausage to start, lowering the baking temperature to just 375 and only baking for 7-10 minutes instead of the suggested 15-20. Serve them as singles or sell them in packs of three for the hungrier crowd! This is sure to be a customer favorite for those looking for a bit more protein in their breakfast routine.
Only two recipes left and we’re back to the sweet stuff. This next recipe from Deep South Dish is another Danish-style twist on croissants. While our last Danish recipe was a stuffed Danish, this twisted variety looks a bit more like the traditional Danish most of us are accustomed to. To make these tasty treats you’ll simple mix cream cheese with powdered sugar and lemon juice for the middle filling and top with a dollop of whatever preserves or jam you’re craving that day. Covered with a sweet glaze and sliced almonds, these croissant danishes are beyond mouthwatering. To modify as a MultiChef recipe, simply cut the cook time down to just 10 minutes.
And last but certainly not least, we finish with the same sales-inducing smell we started with: cinnamon! These crunchy cinnamon stick twists will go prefect with coffee or tea and are extremely portable so they are perfect for your customers who are on the go. This recipe comes from Lil Luna, takes just minutes to put together and only four ingredients! Now that’s easy! For an added twist you can add nuts or fill with jams or preserves instead of cinnamon for additional variety for your customers. Or try drizzling with the sweet glaze from the danish recipe above for added sweetness! To transform this recipe work for your MultiChef simple lower the heat to 350 an bake for only 5-7 minutes.
There you have it, five fantastic breakfast croissant recipes to celebrate National Croissant Day with your customers. You may not get the day off for this holiday, but it’s still worth the extra effort (and sales dollars) to make the most of National Croissant Day and all these fantastic modified MultiChef recipes.
