Bistro Breakfast Sandwiches

These breakfast sammies are grab-and-go perfection. Croissants are actually very rugged when flattened a bit, and they elevate every filling.

  • 2 croissants, halved lengthwise (like a hoagie roll)
  • ½ cup freeze-dried eggs
  • 1 Tbsp bacon bits
  • 1 whole, unripe avocado
  • 2 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 1 tsp oil


At home⇒ Carefully flatten each croissant (for easier packing), then wrap in a paper towel, then in plastic. Pack eggs with bacon in a zip-top baggie. Wrap cheese slices individually in plastic.

On the trail⇒ Make scrambled eggs: Add ¾ cup water to powdered eggs and mix well. Heat oil in nonstick frying pan, add eggs, and scramble until cooked completely. Divide eggs, cheese, and avocado between two croissants.
