Bacon and Mozzarella Croissant with Poached Egg

Bacon and Mozzarella Croissant with Poached Egg

I used to love this delicious open croissant while working at a beautiful wedding establishment outside Wellington. Although I didn’t work there for long, I really enjoyed making this breakfast. It was a very popular option for the guests.  We had also the smoked salmon and cream cheese variation, very similar than this one on the menu, and both of these open croissants sold well. And it is for sure very tasty. It taste divine with my tomato and chili jam on the side.  This bacon and mozzarella croissant with poached egg can easily work well by using white or brown bread instead of the croissants for a slightly cheaper variation. I prefer using the mozzarella slices myself, but if you prefer grated mozzarella it can work just as well. Also the slices takes less time than having to grate the mozzarella if you are short on time.
