The pros: Trader Joe's Uncured Ham and Swiss Cheese Flaky Croissant are the newest to a growing line of croissant products. These are well priced compared to getting these already made.
The cons: These are squares instead of the rolled shape of a regular croissant. It was a touch doughy in the middle.
Maybe croissants are the new cauliflower. One can only hope. It seems like all of a sudden Trader Joe's has rolled out a whole bunch of different croissant based products.
The key thing with the addition of the Croissini and the Mini Croissants was they took out the proof time. So on basically no notice you can pop them in the oven and get something delicious.
In true croissant fashion, the second ingredient here is butter. Always a good sign in my book. Also, the calorie count all things considered is pretty reasonable.
No proofing and about 20 in the oven and you have a small but tasty light lunch. When I say light lunch, I do mean you'll probably want a salad or something to go on the side of these.
Each of these is individually wrapped so you could bring them for lunch if you so wanted to, but I think they were wrapped to keep the toppings contained.
Out of the toaster oven you get a nicely flaky croissant base with finely chopped ham and sprinkles of cheese. The Swiss Cheese became more of a crust because I cooked it the full 20 minutes to ensure the bottom had enough time to create flaky layers.
Overall, I really liked these. The middle was probably the least flaky, but I enjoyed every bite. If your savory side wasn't quite satisfied by the addition of Trader Joe's Croissini then here is your square shaped savory croissant.
For $4.99 the price is on point too. You'll be lucky to get two of these for that price if you have them out.
