Now That’s What I Call Brunch! Jus-Rol Croissants

Did you know Jus-Rol has been around since the 1950s? I didn’t. Making pastry easier for nearly 65 years.

This morning I made a relaxed brunch. I had picked up Jus-Rol’s croissants in a can because I confess to being rather curious and for some reason pastry in a can seems like quite an American thing to me and I don’t remember having ever actually seeing it in the UK before.

You peel the label back on the can, which is the hardest bit because I didn’t really understand what I was doing. It’s actually a big twist of cardboard which then pops open and reveals the fresh pastry inside. You then just unroll the pastry block, pull the pastry triangles apart along the perforations and roll into a crescent.

Stick in a preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes and Bob’s the creepy guy who your mum invited round when dad was away. The packet recommended giving them a light wash with egg or milk before baking, but of course that assumes hat there are eggs or milk in. Which there aren’t currently.

But this is extremely easy and if you’re like me you can serve them warm with a selection of cheese and salami and it will be epic. They’re a little smaller than regular packaged croissants, but that means you can eat more! Delicious.
