Croissant salami tomatoes and melted cheese

With kids going back to school and due to the Covid pandemic, best that our kids have food from home than buying from canteen. It’s much healthier to have what we know it’s clean and cheap.

Google: “A croissant is a buttery, flaky, French viennoiserie pastry inspired by the shape of the Austrian kipferl but using the French yeast-leavened laminated dough. Often people equate croissants as bread. In fact, croissants are one type of pastry. The basic difference between bread and pastry is that pastry is made from ingredients with high fat content so that the pastry has a flaky texture.”

Most kids like croissant with cheese, we can be creative and adding salami, tomatoes and salad which will fill them up and of course some fruits and yoghurt as accompaniment. It’s easy, colourful healthy, delicious and quick to make them and pack them ready for the kids to take to school. Let’s get the kids lunch ready before school bus come!!!

Spread butter on croissant both sides. Place some salad, tomato slices, salami and the cheese on top.
