Breakfast-stuffed croissants

15 MINUTES | SERVES 2 | EASY

The secret to good scrambled eggs is butter, cream, and gentle heat. The eggs will continue to cook in the heat of the pan so remove from the hob while there is still a little runniness.

streaky bacon 6 rashers

maple syrup 1 tbsp

cayenne pepper a pinch

croissants 2

butter a knob

eggs 4, lightly beaten

double cream 2 tbsp

chives a handful, snipped

• Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Toss the bacon in the maple syrup and cayenne. Line a baking tray with baking paper, lay the bacon on top and put into the oven for 20 minutes, turning halfway, until crisp. At the halfway mark, but the croissants in the oven to warm through.

• Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Whisk together the eggs, cream, most of the chives, and some seasoning in a bowl. Pour into the pan and cook, gently moving a wooden spoon through the eggs to softly scramble. When there is still a little runny egg remaining, remove from the heat.

• Split the croissants and stuff with the maple bacon and a generous spoonful of the creamy scrambled eggs. Scatter over the rest of the chives and serve immediately.
