Croissant or English muffin?
English muffins. They have much more flavor and they are good for all kinds of sandwiches. Have you ever tried making a double decker burger with croissants? It's a disaster waiting to happen. You start out with the best intent and end up with a train wreck. Not so when you use English muffins.
Wow. New England is really divided.
I like really croissants like you'd get at an artisanal bakery or in Europe.
I always thought crescent roll was just the American version. like, pillsbury calls them crescent rolls and theirs are more breadlike (pillsbury dough sort of all tastes the same in my opinion) whereas an authentic version would be more flakey and buttery, and would have an authentic French name.
A crescent roll has far less butter. It's not as flakey. The croissant roll has layers of butter rolled in. Put a layer on the dough fold and roll. You do this several times. The same with danish pastry. That's why they are flakey. You can make e- muffins fat free but it would have more a french
I never liked English Muffins.
there's nothing like a good new york bagel. it's the water here that makes them impossible to replicate anywhere else. lightly toasted with real cream cheese (the freshly made kind, not philadelphia) yummy yum
wait so are you from the uk or are you from new jersey and just living in the uk?
or austrian or something. whatever, they eat a lot of them in france and croissant is a french word. either way nobody calls them crescent rolls in europe.
crescent roll is the american name for them. but since they're a french food, croissant is the proper name.
Yvonne!!! That's a French ass name, Yvonne! My little croissant. Can I have it?
There is no wrong choice here.
Croissant? You mean crescent roll?
I love scones! The one or two times my grandma has made them, they were so delicious! Too bad she doesn't make them more often… they're the best with homemade strawberry jam.
The Hapsburgs are the true royals not the frauds in England.
Why isn't doughnut an option?
Croissants loaded with better you put butter on top of the dough before you roll them up. That's why they're so flaky.
I know! The name sounds French though. Hapsburgs FTW.
Croissants aren't French. They're Austrian! During the Siege of Vienna the Austrians to taunt the Muslims made them to fling over the walls to show how much food they had. That is why they are crescent shaped. Austrian food once again is delish and French food is disgusting.
Just Curious, why'd you pick New Jersey. Obviously UK isn't a choice...
Living in England I feel obligated to vote for crumpets (English muffins) and they're better anyway
English food makes my stomach do somersaults. I prefer France and her food anyday.
English muffin with butter and jelly mmm...
My husband will occasionally treat me by fixing one of those for me on a weekend morning. Yum!
Amazingly, the cheap diner breakfast bisquits and gravy is one of my favorites because the gravy is creamy and savory.
That sounds delicious. I must try it.
Biscuits!!!!! They're like a mix of croissants and English muffins
Croissant - don't have to toast them and they can be stuffed with ham and cheese.
Though I like both, I'll give this one to the Frenchies.
Croissants are for elitist commies! he he :p
English muffin with orange marmalade is part of my breakfast every Sunday morning. We go out for breakfast after church.
Sourdough English muffins.
I enjoy eggs benedict so I pick English muffin!
I prefer a croissant. However English muffins are lower in calories. Actually right now I'm avoiding bread. The Atkins plan works so well for me that I need to get back on it.
Crumpets are the best :-)
EB find someone who knows how to make them. Whenever we make them here, they are the first thing to go at parties. That is how I know our friends actually like them.
When scones are made well they are not salty, hard or dry. The sweetened whipped cream with a small dollop of intense jam balances with the mild warm scone itself. They are best fresh and good with a nice strong hot cup of tea.
Croissant's are all fluff and air. Give me a toasted English muffin that I can load up with gobs of butter.
I love making my own egg McMuffin at home. Love, love, love them.
Store bought scones tend to be hard and dry.
don't be messing with my bagels now..
My grandmother was from Ireland, and she made the BEST scones..when they just came out of the oven, and you put some jam on 'em MMMMMM MMMMMMM.. my mom always kicked herself for not getting the recipe..
This poll inspired me to get an english muffin from Braum's this morning.
I think so. it looks like corn meal
