Guest Post {Crumbs and Chaos}

Hi, I’m Becca from Crumbs and Chaos, a blog I write with my 3 sisters. We have 11 children between us, hence the name Crumbs and Chaos…we deal with our fair share on a daily basis. We love sharing our favorite recipes, tips on controlling the chaos and seeing awesome things from our readers every Saturday at our Seasonal Inspiration link party.
I am honored to be here today at Once a Mom...Always a Cook
sharing this deliciousness with you.

Sometimes it doesn't hurt to make breakfast a little special. We're no stranger to breakfast at Crumbs and Chaos, we love it every which way. Recently my husband picked up a croissant stuffed with ham and cheese at a local coffee shop, it was absolutely to die for! The pastry was so delicious and came apart in layers. I had to do my best to recreate it at home since the $2.50 price tag makes it an occasional treat.

So I simply took puff pastry, cut it into triangles and put ham and swiss inside. These weren't exactly like the ones from the coffee shop, but definitely delicious in their own right! They go perfect alongside your morning coffee or would be a great addition to your next brunch.

1 sheet FROZEN PUFF PASTRY (half of a 17.3 oz. pkg.), thawed
8 slices thinly sliced BLACK FOREST or HONEY HAM
Thinly sliced SWISS CHEESE
1 teaspoon WATER

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lay puff pastry on lightly floured surface, roll out slightly. Cut into quarters, cut each square into 2 triangles.

On each triangle, lay a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. Starting with long end, roll up and lay on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Beat together egg and water. Brush tops of pastry with mixture.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

*Please note: these are best served right away and don't reheat very well.

Stop on over and say hi!
