Ingredients for Ham Croissant with Raw Honey-Mustard Mayo
- 1 pound of thinly sliced ham
- 6 lightly toasted croissants, cut in half horizontally
- 6 leaves of Bibb lettuce
- 6 slices of Swiss cheese
- 1 thinly sliced beefsteak tomato
- 1 thinly sliced cucumber
Raw Honey Mustard Mayo:
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons of warm water
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
- 1 and 1/2 cups of vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons of Manuka honey
- 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
Directions for Turkey Croissant with Raw Honey-Mustard Mayo
- For the Raw Honey-Mustard Mayo: Using a food processor’s bowl you’ve fitted with the blade attachment, combine the egg yolks, the water, the lemon juice, the white vinegar, the salt, and the Dijon mustard, blending until smooth.
- While the motor is running, pour your vegetable oil slowly into the bowl, blending until emulsified. From there, move the mixture into a medium-sized bowl before stirring in the Manuka honey and the yellow mustard.
- For the Ham Croissant: On the bottom-side of every croissant, spread about one tablespoon of the honey-mustard mayo. Top the mayo with the ham slices, one lettuce leaf, Swiss cheese, and the tomato and cucumber slices, adding the top layer of the croissant. From here, you may serve immediately.
- Note: If you end up making more honey-mustard mayo—either intentionally or by accident—then consider using it for dipping sauce, possibly for chips or chicken nuggets.
