Learn how to make easy breakfast croissant boats and customize them for your taste! These croissant boats are the perfect grab and go option for busy mornings! You can make and freeze them, then just reheat in a toaster oven!
We’ve all had them. Mine always happen when we both hit snooze on the alarm clocks about eight times before realizing we’re going to be super late. Hubby needs to be at work by 8 am and has an hour-long commute while I’m trying to rush out the door to get in my Orange Theory class before I’m awake enough time to talk myself out of it.
For mornings like these, I love having these simple breakfast croissant boats in the fridge or freezer because all I have to do is pop one into the toaster oven and make coffee. We’re both big on having eggs for breakfast, so these croissant boats fulfill all the requirements while providing a little more nutrition with all the healthy veggies we’re going to be squeezing in.
A balanced breakfast that’s all ready to go without even having to turn on the stove.
In the past, I’ve shared my breakfast casserole  with you guys, and so many of you have made it and loved it! Today’s recipe is just a version of that casserole shoved inside of a croissant boat and made easy enough to munch on with one hand while you’re on your way to dropping the kiddos to school.
Speaking of… did I really just say the ’s’ word? For all you moms and dads that are not looking forward to the breakfast battles that will start come the first day of school, this little number goes out to you! I see you and your hair-pulling struggles and urge you to grab croissants, stuff them with whatever the heck plus eggs your kids will eat and load these boats up with cheese.
The best part is you can customize croissant boats however you like, so make a kids version and an adult version with everything they won’t eat.
First off, croissants. You can get any kind you like: multi-grain, the mini variety, the big ones from Costco that will satisfy even the biggest breakfast appetite. I usually use the larger croissants from Costco as they hold a little more of the egg mixture than the smaller stuff. But the little ones would be perfect to convince the tiny picky eater in your life that these are worth a try.
Next, eggs. You’ll need anywhere from 6-8 eggs. I really like to load up the croissant boats, so I go the eight egg route and fill it up nice and full. Trust me; whether you’re having these for breakfast or lunch, you certainly won’t be hungry after this!
Finally, we get cheesy. I love adding cheese to my breakfast croissant boats or my breakfast casseroles. It’s the stuff that brings the whole show together. Feel free to use any kind of cheese you like here! Shredded swiss, mozzarella, white cheddar, sharp cheddar, gruyere, feta, goat cheese and pretty much anything else that pairs well with eggs!
I kept these veggie boats vegetarian because truth be told, I’m not a morning meat person. I reserve meat/poultry for lunch and dinner and usually opt to have a more veggie-loaded breakfast. But you can certainly customize this a million different ways! Here are just a few ideas:
See what I mean? The possibilities are endless.
Oh yeah, you can! You can make these boats, bake them off, let them cool, and then individually wrap each in freezer paper, pack them into a zip top bag and have them all set to go. I do suggest allowing the boat to defrost in the refrigerator overnight so that it doesn’t take as long to heat up in the toaster oven the next day. To reheat once it’s defrosted, you just pop it into a 250-300ºF toaster oven for 8-10 minutes. So while that’s heating up, you can get dressed, put lunch together, and put a pot of coffee on. Or you know, the 10-minute makeup routine ain’t a bad idea either.
You can also make these on Sundays as part of your meal prep for the week. The boats will easily last in the refrigerator for five days, so a whole weeks worth of breakfast in the fridge at one time is a very real possibility.
With so many flavor combinations it’s pretty hard to get bored of these homemade croissant boats! Just switch up the flavors and see which one you like best!
Here’s to easy mornings!
