Author Notes: This is what I call a breakfast deluxe. Croissants make every morning feel special but filling them with brie and strawberries makes them even more luscious. I added lettuce leaves for some extra color and the additional texture they provide. To be honest, this can hardly be called a recipe. However, I felt that it's just too delicious not to be shared. I was, actually, introduced to this dish at quite a young age. My mom claimed that this was "overly delicious". I was skeptical to say the least, but it didn't take me long to get to appreciate it as much as she did. You can use good quality store-bought croissants or make your own ones.
Although I most often enjoy these for a late Sunday breakfast or brunch, they are also great to serve at a get-together instead of sandwiches or sliders. —Sini | My Blue&White Kitchen
flavorful lettuce, such as Red Salanova, washed & dried
strawberries, washed, hulled, & sliced
- Using a serrated knife, cut the croissants in half horizontally without cutting all the way through. We want to make a kind of pocket for our fillings. Fill the croissants with lettuce, brie, and sliced strawberries. Honestly, it is impossible to overload them with strawberries so be generous with them.
- Enjoy with a cup of coffee (either warm or iced) or a glass of freshly squeezed juice. Et voilà!
