Baked Egg patties (Egg and cheese Croissant)

Baked Egg patties make a great breakfast option . They can be either eaten as is or used in a sandwich or used in a tortilla. With hardly any preparation time and a total of 10 minutes of baking time. The best part is you can even prepare in bulk and freeze it for later use.

The thought of making these patties , came from Dunkin Donuts. I myself do not eat eggs but my husband and son, love eggs. We have a Dunkin Donut near our home. We love stopping by there for coffee. While I settle for a bagel and cream cheese, My husband likes their Egg & Cheese Croissant. My son's constant order is Egg & Cheese Wake up wrap. Both of these items , uses a egg patty. So , I thought why not try making them at home. That's when i stumbled upon a recipe at Alyona's space. I made a few changes but stuck to her recipe for the most part. The result was awesome. The patties were a hugh hit with my folks.

The only necessity for this recipe is that you need to have a English muffin pan. Using this pan, you can make patties in bulk and freeze them too for later use. Honestly in my case, between my husband and kiddo, these 6 patties get over in a couple of days.

My son loves making these and he made a perfect model for this post:) At the end of the recipe, I will also show how to use these patties to make Egg and Cheese Croissant.
So lets get  started with the recipe..

Note: All measurements are based on the US measuring cup and spoon sizes where 1 cup = 235 ml

  • Large Eggs : 6
  • Oil or cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Grease the cavities of the English muffin tray.

  • Add 1 tbsp of water to each cavity.

  • Break the egg directly into the cavity.

  • Using a fork, poke the yolk once or twice until the yolks spread out a little.

  • Add salt and pepper.

  • Bake for 10 minutes.Once done, remove the pan and keep the pan on a cooking rack.

  • Refrigerate the cooled patties until ready to use or you can freeze them too. (If freezing , then separate the patties using a parchment paper and keep them in a freezer safe air tight container.

  • Egg Patty :1
  • Large Croissant : 1 (I usually buy them from COSTCO )
  • Slice of cheese: 1 (I used American cheese or Pepper jack cheese)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cut the croissant horizontally and lightly toast them in a toaster (I usually got for setting number 1).Take one egg patty in a microwave safe plate and keep a slice of cheese on top. Heat it in a microwave just until the cheese melts.
  • Place this on one half (bottom part ) of the croissant. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover with the other half of the croissant.
  • Enjoy with tea or coffee.
