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.

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

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

crescent roll is the american name for them. but since they're a french food, croissant is the proper name.

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.

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

Amazingly, the cheap diner breakfast bisquits and gravy is one of my favorites because the gravy is creamy and savory.

Croissant - don't have to toast them and they can be stuffed with ham and cheese.

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.

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.
