Smoky Gouda and baby spinach pair with sausage and eggs inside a flaky croissant.


  • 3 Italian sausage links (12 oz.)
  • 3 oz baby spinach (3-1/2 cups)
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 6 croissants, split
  • 3/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese (3 oz.)


  • Cook sausages in large nonstick skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes; remove from pan. Let cool slightly, then cut lengthwise in half.
  • Clean pan. Coat with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add spinach; saute just until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Pour in eggs. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  • Spoon eggs onto croissant bottoms, dividing evenly. Top each with a sausage half, then with cheese. Cover with croissant tops.
