Indulge yourself with a deliciously easy recipe for scrambled egg croissants. The fluffy eggs are a perfect match for the buttery, light-as-a-feather pastries.

This recipe is a lovely Christmas morning meal. You can buy croissants from your local bakery, however, frozen croissants also work well. But, if you’re a purist, you can make them from scratch.


  • 4 croissants

  • 6 extra-large free-range eggs

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for optional garnish

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered, for garnish

Steps to Make It

  2. Set the oven to a very low heat and place the croissants in it to keep warm while you prepare the eggs.

  4. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Once melted, pour the eggs in the pan and let them sit for about 30 to 40 seconds or until they set very slightly. Using a metal or wooden spatula, push the eggs to the center, while tilting the pan to cook the runny bits

  5. Break the eggs up gently with the spatula and keep pushing them to the center. Do this for about 1 to 2 minutes. The eggs should still be firm, but moist when you remove them from the heat.
