Crunchy Caramelised Croissants

Save stale croissants from the bin. Turn them into our crunchy, caramelised croissants instead. Frying croissants in a mix of ghee and honey gives them a rich, crisp crust. Just like the top of a crème brûlée. You can load them up with your favourite pancake toppings. We like covering them with tangy yogurt, passion fruit and an extra drizzle of honey. A brilliant breakfast that turns food waste into a tasty meal.


  • 2 stale croissants
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp honey, plus extra to serve
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Passion fruit & Greek style yogurt, to serve

1. Pop 1 croissant on your work surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten it. Repeat with the second croissant.
2. Place a large frying pan on a medium-low heat. When it's warm, add the ghee and melt it. Add the honey and swirl to melt it. Add the croissants and fry for 2 mins.
3. Flip them over. Cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper and place a couple of heavy weights or tins on top of the croissants to flatten them. Fry for a further 2 mins. Remove the weights and greaseproof paper and flip the croissants again. Recover and pop the weights back on. Fry for 1 min. The croissants will be a rich golden brown.
4. Lift the fried croissants onto 2 serving plates. Let them sit for 2 mins to cool and crisp up. Top with Greek style yogurt, some passion fruit, an extra drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve straight away.
