1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Split the croissants in half. Mix the mustard and the mayonnaise together, then spread the mixture on the cut sides of the croissant halves. Place them on a baking tray.
2. Finely grate the Gruyère cheese. Cut the corned beef into thick slices – don't worry if it crumbles a little as you slice it, you can scoop up the crumbly bits.
3. On the bottom half of each croissant, layer the corned beef, the Gruyère cheese then the sauerkraut. Pop the tops on the croissants.
4. Slide the croissants into the oven for 5-8 mins till they're warmed through and the cheese is oozy and melting. Skewer a cornichon or slice of gherkin onto a cocktail stick and stick it into the croissant. Serve straight away.
