Croissant Crown : Brunch Fit for a Queen

Inspiration comes from many quarters. But it's one thing to see something and another to make it at home without instructions. I once struggled with a Melon de Dinde but the results were definitely worth it, succulent meat made really moist by the fat simmering inside. 

Starting from the reckless principle: if they can do it, I can do it too. When I came across a picture of une couronne de croissants fourrés, there was no doubt in my mind. This beautiful thing was to be the next brunch.

For once, it was dead easy. Start with a tin of uncooked dough for croissants,  sold in shops for £1.50. The stuffing is left entirely up to the imagination. I would think that cheddar will be high on the list however here, I made used of the mozzarella which was languishing in the fridge and left-over ham shreds.

The trick, if ever there is one in this case is the place all the triangles with their small side touching one another in a circle on the work-top, place the fillings on the top and roll the croissant as normal. there will be gaps and therefore a little spillage but that doesn't matter. Cook according to the instructions. Et voila

A tear and share - happy meal.

Always a winner. Think picnics and you'd be safer making 2 croissant crowns. They disappear fast.
