A Florida Valentines Breakfast

Fresh slices of mango, avacado and pineapple, all grilled over a toasted croissant served with fresh proscuitto slices, fresh paper thin sliced shallots and yummy scrambled eggs with gruyere and fresh herbs.

This is easy quick and a great breakfast. Make on a grill or a grill pan or just in a skillet. I used a inside grill pan. Serve with the champagne and fresh blueberries and raspberries and a dash of chamboard and a sweet card, a single rose and you can’t get much better guys or girls. To me this is a perfect morning breakfast … Romantic, sweet, easy, caring and great. I would love it. This serves 2, but by all means make more …


  1. 1First grill fruit … I like to use an inside grill pan but a saute pan or outside grill will work too. Just brush with olive oil salt and pepper. Lightly grill till you have grill marks on each side. Not overdone, just a light grill flavor. Should only take a minute or two per side. Remove and cool.
  2. 2Grill the croissant. Either use a grill pan, saute pan, grill or toaster, anything works, just lightly brown then spread a little of the herbed cream cheese or herbed cheese on it for flavor.
  3. 3In a small pan melt some butter. In a bowl mix your eggs, salt and pepper and all purpose seasoning and wisk. I like to add 2 tablespoons of water … yes water, it makes the eggs fluffy. Scramble in the saute pan with the melted butter on medium low until mostly done. I like mine wet. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley and tarragon. Use as much as you want.
  4. 4Add 1 slice of proscuitto, then the fruit, shallots slices just a couple of rings, proscuitto then gruyere, eggs, and top with more gruyere. Add some fresh chives for flavor as a garnish if you like. ENJOY!
