Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon Breakfast Croissant Sandwich
This recipe makes 2 copycat Dunkin Donuts breakfast sandwiches but it is easy to double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe if you need more.
- 4 slices of bacon (premade packaged bacon is easiest)
- Two croissants
- 2 slices of cheese (this recipe uses Gouda, but you can use cheddar or any cheese you prefer)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar
- 1 tbsp of maple syrup
How to make the bacon breakfast croissant:
The first step is to mix your maple syrup and brown sugar together. Spread that sugar mixture over the bacon. This is going to give it an amazing sugar glaze and give it a little bit of sweetness. That sweet and salty mixture will really give you a nice flavor.
Whisk the eggs in a small bowl.
On the stove (you can also use a griddle), set the heat to medium-high and cook the bacon. You can let it cook to your preference of crispiness. While my kids prefer it to be less crispy, I like it as crispy as you can get.
If you are using premade bacon, simply heat it up in the microwave according to the instructions on the box.
Once you have the bacon cooked, add the whisked eggs next to the bacon and cook them until they are done (2-4 minutes or until they are cooked thoroughly).
You can do the eggs in a separate pan if you don’t have enough room or if you are using premade bacon. I like to spread the eggs out so they are as large as I can get them. Then, I will cut them in half and fold them to fit the croissant.
When my daughter makes it, she likes to cook them separately so there isn’t much grease. If you are using a pan, you might want to either drain and wipe out the bacon grease or use two separate pans.
Place the cheese slices on your egg to let it melt just a tad. Then, cut open your croissants and place the folded egg, bacon, and cheese on there.
