In many countries around the world, breakfast is not celebrated as extensively as in Germany. If you eat breakfast in Italy or Spain, a small milk roll dipped in coffee is usually enough to start the day. In France, on the other hand, there is another classic that combines firm soft cheese with sweet elements on a croissant. A croissant with brie, figs and lavender honey is the delicious result that is a must-try.
Brie is originally the name of a soft cheese with noble form from the region of the same name, which is made from raw or pasteurized cow’s milk. Today, however, it is one of the most copied types of cheese in the world and there are only two types that enjoy protection of origin in France. The Brie de Meaux and the Brie de Melun. By the way, Brie tastes really delicious not only in combination with croissants, figs and honey glaze, but also with homemade fig mustard. And you should definitely try these delicious breads with goat cheese nougat and figs.
Finally, you can add a lot of variation to your croissant with the honey glaze. It is theoretically just slightly warm and flavored honey. Whether you sprinkle in fresh herbs such as thyme, rosemary or chilli and other spices is up to you. But I really recommend homemade lavender honey. Together with the figs and brie, this simple breakfast quickly becomes a real highlight. We also have other breakfast highlights here for you:
French classic – croissant with brie, figs and lavender honey
Not just for breakfast: our delicious croissant with brie, figs and lavender honey.
First cut the croissant crosswise so that it can be placed on top. Heat the honey slightly with the lavender blossoms, leave to infuse and then pass through a sieve. Cut the figs and brie cheese. Sort the rocket, wash and shake dry.
Then cover the croissant with the finished ingredients. If needed, you can also incorporate nuts to add texture and crunch to your croissant.
