One of my best friends offered to bring me breakfast at work and asked what I would like – I said I’d love a bacon, egg and cheese croissant thinking I’d get the usual greasy fast food. He shows up with this droolworthy croissant breakfast sandwich and a side of roasted herb potatoes from George Artisan Bakery & Bistro and it was amazing. Thick, crispy bacon on a huge fresh toasted croissant with cheddar cheese and a slab of scrambled eggs so large it looked like an omelet. The potatoes were roasted with fresh rosemary and other herbs and by the time I was finished with breakfast I knew I wouldn’t be needing any lunch.
