  • 2 croissants, halved horizontally
  • 1 avocado, peeled and stoned
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tbsp sunflower oil
  • 6 rashers smoked streaky bacon


  1. Heat a grill and grill the cut sides of the croissant for a min or two until golden – keep an eye on these are they catch quickly.
  2. Crush the avocado with the lemon juice and a little salt and pepper. Spread this over the bottom cut side of the croissant.
  3. Mix the maple syrup and smoked paprika and season a little. Warm the oil in a frying pan over a high heat and cook the bacon on each side for a min or two until just cooked. Turn down slightly, add the maple mixture and cook for another couple of mins until the maple is sticky and the bacon well coated.
  4. Pop the bacon rashers over the smashed avocado, then drizzle on any extra maple glaze and top with the other half of the croissant.
