Cooking with cast iron cookware is a new territory for me. My first Le Creuset cookware was a 4.7L Oval French Oven in Beige which I used to make pasta sauce, stock and beriyani. Albeit it is a little heavy and requires some adjustments from a non-stick cookware user to a cast iron cookware user, I love the heat distribution and its solid build. They are the same reasons I love the omelette pan too. My friend told me that his mum was gifted a Le Creuset French Oven when she got married and two decades later, her French Oven is still going strong. It was a good enough reason for me to splurge on my very first Le Creuset French Oven and eventually I treated to myself to a salt pig and sugar bowl of the same brand. Thanks to Kitchenware Superstore, I can now add the omelette pan to my Le Creuset collection.
I am also excited that one of will be adding the Le Creuset Omelette Pan to your existing cookware collection! I’m so thankful for all your creative entries for my giveaway with Kitchenware Superstore. I have been spending my weekend mornings with this gorgeous pan ever since I have received it. It is a perfect size to make breakfast for two. Case in point with the next recipe I’m going to share with you – the baked croissant sandwich casserole. You can use normal bread with this recipe but since I’m talking about French cookware, croissants are in order! *wink*
Baked Croissant Sandwich Casserole
What you’ll need for 3 people:-
- 3 croissants
- 3 slices of sliced chicken breasts
- A small handful of baby rocket
- 1 vine ripe mini capsicum, sliced diagonally
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp Greek Styled Yoghurt
- 2 tbsps milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 – 3 tablespoons of grated cheese (I used Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus – a mix of Mozzarella, Cheddar & Parmesan)
Preheat oven to 180C/356F.
Slice all the croissants lengthwise and stuff them with chicken breast slices, rocket and sliced mini capsicums. Arrange them in a 20cm/8inched pan and set aside. In a measuring jug, whisk eggs, yoghurt, milk, salt and pepper to taste until well combine. Pour the egg mixture into pan, drenching the croissant sandwiches. Then, set them aside to allow the sandwiches to absorb the egg mixture for 10 minutes or so.
Scatter grated cheese over the top of the sandwiches and bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until the cheese is blistered and the egg is set. Serve immediately. If you are a fan hot sauce, be generous with this dish.
