Do you know the movie “La Boum” with Sophie Marceau? I’ve seen it the first time like 20 years ago and I still love it. I remember a sene in a second part, where Sophie Marceau was sitting in a train with her grandmother, eating a croissant and drinking coffee. That was when I’ve discovered my favorite breakfast - coffee and the croissant. Years passed, taste changed, but not this. I still love it and had it like hundrets of times on my way to work. Actually it makes me feel great about a morning, so whenever I feel a little bit down, this is what I should eat.
Today I’ve made a special treat for myself - my own mini coissants. I used a frozen puff pastry, but I’m still very proud of myself. There’s a delicious stuffing inside, what creates an unique taste, and it’s not difficult at all. I’d suggest to make it on weekends, as it takes time to cool the onion mix, then refrigerate it and a baking proces takes only 20 minutes. Besides it’s so nice to sit comfortably and eat a sitll warm croissant with your morning coffee.
You will need (for 10):
- 20g butter
- 2 small onions, finely chopped
- 6 pitted black olives, sliced
- 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
- salt and pepper
- 1 egg, beaten
Put the croissants to the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200*C. Brush each croissant with the beaten egg, place them on a baking tray covered with a baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden.
