Croissant Egg/Egg Monster/Breakfast Feast!

I was looking to be glutenous on a Sunday morning way back when.  Well, I’m always looking to be glutenous on every Sunday morning.  I LOVE breakfast but sometimes have a hard time finding something different.  I wanted a breakfast platter of sorts and before I knew it I ended up with this feast!  I have never thought of having mushrooms as a side for bfast until traveling around Europe.  Many of the hotels offered this and as a mushroom lover I thought to myself, “why the ‘bleep’ haven’t I thought of this?! I eat mushrooms with everything!”  So, after beating myself up about it right, left, and center I decided this would now be a weekly staple.  What to add with this staple? Well, after being reminded of these amazing European hotels I was quickly reminded of the awesome croissants they served, next came the thought of eggs, then toast, fruit, and my mind soon arrived at the recipe platter below. Simple, quick, delicious, satisfying, and seemingly grander than it really is (who doesn’t love that?)… I present to you… drum roll please… “Croissant Egg/Egg Monster/Breakfast Feast!”
