Ham and Cheese Croissant

Ham and Cheese Croissant

The pear and watercress add an unconventional touch to a basic ham and cheese croissant. The buttery, flaky crust of the croissant is simply mouthwatering.


  • 1 plain croissant, split in half horizontally

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 thin slices deli ham (2 ounces)

  • 2 thin slices Muenster cheese (1 ounce)

  • cup thinly sliced pear (about ½ small pear)

  • ½ cup watercress, washed and dried, thick stems removed


  1. Spread cut sides of croissant with mustard. Layer ham, cheese, pear, and watercress on bottom half. Top with remaining half croissant.

  2. Wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to overnight.
