Ingredients

White Scribbled Underline

01

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the halved croissants, cut side up, on a parchment lined half sheet pan and toast in the oven until golden, 10-12 minutes, checking often so they don't burn. Let the croissants cool.

02

Tear the croissants into large bite-size pieces and place evenly in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.

03

In a 10- or 12-inch skillet set over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel lined plate. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease and return the skillet to medium heat.

04

Add the shallot (or red onion) and a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook for 3-5 minutes, until translucent.
