When the girls are staying with my parents in Colorado, they always make sure to hit up a little French cafe in Colorado Springs. I’ve never been, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. After they first went, Leah kept telling me about this sandwich and she was able to find a recipe that was a close runner up. It makes for a light summer meal and hits the spot with a good green salad.
- 2 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 4 croissants, split
- 8 slices Swiss cheese
- 1 lb. Black Forest Ham
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, honey, and brown sugar and spread evenly amongst each side of the split croissants. Place a slice of cheese on both the top and bottom halves of the croissants and fill with desired amounts of ham in between. Place the halves together and wrap in foil. Place in the preheated oven and allow to warm for 15-20 minutes.
*Note: When I make these, I use 1/2 tbsp. of honey and 1/2 tbsp. of brown sugar because I like it a little less sweet. We’ve also been known to double this recipe and place the extras in the refrigerator.
