VEGETABLE CROISSANT SANDWICH

Croissant is buttery flaky bread, made by yeast dough with butter and rolling and folding a few times and then roll in to a like a flat bread and cut in triangles and then shape them in to croissant shape. For making this bread we need lot of skills and patience .Normally in France and Spain people like to have them plain with butter as a breakfast with coffee. I first tasted this croissant in Australia (Sydney),one fine morning my brother brought a bag full of freshly baked warm buttery croissants and some of them were filled with chocolate mmmm, believe me still I can remember that yummm y buttery flavor. I like croissants fresh and warm not 1 or 2 days old ones hummm but if I have 1 day old croissants with me then I make sandwich like this check it out…
Photobucket INGREDIENTS:----
Croissant – 2
Carrot - chopped – 1/2 cup
Cucumber -- chopped – 1/2 cup
Sweet corn – 1/2cup
Olives chopped -- 1 tab sp
Dry Italian herbs – 1/2 tea sp
Pepper powder – 1/2 tea sp
Mayonnaise – 1/4 cup
Tomato – 1 big cut in to round slices
Lettuce leaves – a few
METHOD:----

1. Split croissants, spread lightly with mayonnaise
2. Mix all the chopped vegetables in a mixing bowl and add Italian herbs, pepper powder, mayonnaise (reserve 1 tad sp for spreading on the base of croissant)
3. Now start making layers first with lettuce then spread the vegetable salad mixture
4. Now place the tomato slices (if you like you can add some more extra mayonnaise now)
5. Now close with the other part of the croissant
6. Enjoy your breakfast with a cup of coffee.
Since mine is a vegetarian version if you want to make this croissant sandwich then you can add chicken pieces or boiled egg slices as one layer, you want it more cheese the you can add a layer with cheese slice.
Hope you all like this.
