National Croissant Day – January 30

NATIONAL CROISSANT DAY

In the United States, National Croissant Day is observed each year on January 30th. This “unofficial” holiday lets us celebrate this delicious baked bread.   Croissants are buttery, crescent-shaped rolls that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  The typical ingredients for making these yummy baked rolls are flour, butter, salt, sugar, yeast and water.  This rich, flaky bread can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.   They are enjoyed just as they are, straight out of the oven or maybe you might like to spread more butter on top of them.  Many people like to split them open and fill them like a sandwich.  A good breakfast filling could be egg and sausage while a good lunch filling might be chicken salad or egg salad.  The great tasting croissant can be enjoyed anyway that you like it, anytime of the day!!

NATIONAL CROISSANT DAY HISTORY

The origin of  this unofficial National holiday is unknown.  However, it is known that the history of croissant  began in Vienna, Austria in 1683.  That year the Turkish Empire laid siege on Vienna, Austria.  After defeat of the Turks, crescent moon shaped bread was baked to celebrate and it then became custom to serve morning coffee with the pastry.

ENJOY A CROISSANT ON NATIONAL CROISSANT DAY!!
