Smoked Salmon and Cream cheese Croissant with Poached Egg

Smoked Salmon and Cream cheese 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 also had the bacon and mozzarella 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 the cold cucumber and yoghurt on the side.  This smoked salmon and cream cheese croissant with poached egg can easily work well by using white or brown bread instead of the croissants for a slightly cheaper variation. You can also add a personal touch by making smoked salmon rosettas, firmly placing them down so the poached egg can still balance on top.Hope you enjoy making this!
