There's nothing like a warm, buttery croissant on a chilly fall morning, especially one that's loaded with flavorful roasted turkey, crisp smokey bacon, a sunny-side up egg, and delicious blueberry-covered goat cheese crumbles. The blueberry-coated goat cheese—available at Trader Joe's—is the perfect addition to this breakfast sandwich; its sweet, yet tart flavor is a great contrast against the richness of the meat and croissant.

Not into unique fromage? There are more breakfast-friendly options that would also be delicious on this sandwich. Try pairing a little bit of applewood-smoked cheddar with apple butter or a couple slices of buttery muenster cheese with raspberry jam.

  3. Take a small non-stick frying pan and melt the pat of salted butter. Add the egg and cook, sunny-side up, over medium-low heat until the white is cooked through and the yolk is still runny. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt, remove from heat and set aside.
