These ham and cheese croissants are a quick and simple snack idea for lunch or supper. They take 10 minutes to throw together - if that - and even less time to consume. I've had them sitting in my photographs folder for a while - whilst I considered whether or not they were blog worthy enough NOT to make my repeat readers feel ripped off... ... I'm bored. I have a spare ten minutes. So here we are. If you do feel ripped off, you may leave... (Pleeeeease don't go!!!) I for one, hope you stay long enough to realise that although this is a glorified ham and cheese sandwich that you need no recipe for - it's actually a pretty neat idea that isn't a ham and cheese sandwich and is so easy it may not have crossed your mind to give it a whirl. Neil loves them. I'm not going to give you a specific recipe, but here's what you do... * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  Ham and Cheese Croissants Whack the oven on to 160c fan/180c/350f . Slice four (or more - you choose. We usually have two each) croissants in half, horizontally. Grab some butter or low fat spread (from the fridge) along with some thick slices of smoked ham and a wedge of gruyere cheese. Grate the gruyere into a bowl - you need a large handful for four croissants. Spread each cut side of all the croissants with butter then pile as much ham and cheese as you like onto one half of each. Place the other half of the croissant on the top and scatter with any remaining cheese. Place on a baking sheet and pop into the oven - the oven does not need to have reached it's temperature, it just needs to be on it's way. Make yourself a hot drink (tea/coffee - whatever you fancy) and by the time you're stirring your teaspoon in your cup, the croissants will be done. If you don't drink tea or coffee - leave your croissants cooking for just shy of 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, plate up... and EAT.
