Method

 
Beat the eggs, milk and chives together and season. Add the butter and oil to the pan and heat until bubbling.

Dip 2 pieces of croissant in the egg mixture (allow them to absorb lots of egg) and fry over moderate heat until golden on each side (about 30 seconds a side). Remove and place on paper towel and fry the rest. Keep the others warm by placing in a warmer drawer or a low oven.

Spread the fried croissants with a bit of mustard and sandwich a slice or two of ham and cheese between 2 pieces of croissants. Top with some rocket.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
