About This Recipe

Using croissants for sandwiches is very indulgent, and a very easy way to dress up what can be an ordinary recipe. While most bakeries offer croissants, it may be worth your while to search out the real thing; a flaky, buttery, delicious croissant.

But if you can’t find the real thing (I can’t in my town), ordinary grocery store croissants will do in this delicious sandwich. You could, of course, make your own, but that takes hours and hours!

Salmon, three kinds of cheese, fresh basil, and mayonnaise make an indulgent filling for this recipe. You can use smoked salmon or canned salmon, but I prefer to use leftover salmon fillets. The next time you grill salmon, make a few extra and store them in the fridge so you can enjoy this wonderful sandwich the next day.



Prepare the croissants and set aside.


In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the mayonnaise and mix well until smooth. Then add the Parmesan and Havarti.


Gently stir the salmon into the cream cheese mixture, being careful not to break it up too much.


Make sandwiches with the salmon filling and the croissants, using the fresh basil leaves in place of lettuce. Serve immediately.
