Today I woke up with a hankering for something I hadn't had in quite a while:
A breakfast croissant sandwich. Mmm, yummy. Just thinking about it made my mouth water.
But I wasn't entirely convinced that I had everything I needed to make them. I knew we had plenty of pork tenderloin from our pigs, and we had the eggs from the chickens, but it was a gamble on the rest of the gang.
I held my breath as I rummaged around in the pantry and fridge, and low and behold, I just happened to come across all the ingredients I needed! Here they are:
3 slices of thinly sliced pork tenderloin
3 small croissants
3 slices Velveeta cheese
You probably noticed, but I'll go ahead and point out the obvious: The recipe makes 3 sandwiches.
After I got the first croissant browned I wizened up and took out the meat. That made room for the other two croissants, and it made me feel a little smarter.
See why we eat cereal most mornings? I don't like feeling dumb.
Unfortunately that's not the only mistake I made. I forgot to take a picture of the eggs frying! But I feel fairly safe in assuming that most of you know what an eggs looks like when it's being fried in a skillet, so just use your imagination here. And yes, that is the next step--fry the eggs.
Goodness, that looks good! You could do both sides if you wanted to. That would probably look even better.
I'll do that next time.
Pick a side, any side.
I think I was waking up a bit by then. Although the lighting went all funny on this one.
Oh well, it was that kind of morning.
But I like to make sure the cheese is good and melted, so I lay them back in the pan and grill them just a few minutes more. It warms everything back up and makes that cheese go all ooey-gooey.
And you just can't beat ooey-gooey cheese. Especially when it's Velveeta.
I'm telling you, it was delicious. And it was just the thing to warm me up on a cold November morning. Believe me, it hit the spot.
Plus it woke me up. Well, that and a homemade mocha. But I'll save that recipe for later!
