I have made these several times for brunch and they are sooo gooood! Very easy to prepare, which is what you want when you have over-night guests! I love combination of nutmeg and the cheeses!
- 4 large croissants, split into top and bottom halves
- 2 cups grated swiss cheese
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄4 cup grated monterey jack cheese or 1⁄4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 5 large eggs
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt, if desired
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350°F
- Butter four au gratin dishes.
- Place the bottom half of each croissant in a dish, cut side up.
- Spread Swiss cheese on each, saving about 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top. Follow with all of the Parmesan and Monterey Jack, dividing each cheese equally among the croissants.
- In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, milk, and seasonings until they are frothy.
- Pour 2/3 cup of the egg mixture over each croissant and replace the tops.
- Sprinkle the remaining Swiss cheese evenly over the tops. Bake 20 minutes or until the eggs are set and the croissants are a golden brown.
