Champagne Breakfast

"This is a tasty Champagne Breakfast, perfect for celebrating a special occasion. If you don't like smoked salmon, you could use shaved ham instead. Because this is served so early, your guests might like to mix their champagne with orange juice. Place a jug of freshly squeezed juice on the table, and let guests mix their own drinks."

  • 8 eggs
  • 750 ml champagne, chilled
  • 1 liter orange juice, freshly squeezed


  • Prehat oven to 180°C Place croissants on a tray, and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden and heated through. Be careful not to cook them too long, as they burn easily.
  • Meanwhile, heat about an inch of water in a large frying pan, until it is simmering. Break each egg into the water, and simmer until eggs are cooked to your liking.
  • Place each croissant onto plates, and open out. Divide salmon (or ham) between the 4 croissants, top with 2 eggs, and place top of croissant back on.
  • Serve with glasses of champagne and orange juice.

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
