Sunday Breakfast with Wewalka Croissants

This is a sponsored post.  I received compensation and product samples in exchange for writing this blog post. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own. 

Jake and I recently started a new tradition of making breakfast together on Sunday mornings. During the week, we usually have very little time to sit down and eat a proper breakfast together.   I'm usually grabbing yogurt or a Larabar on my way out the door. So, on Sundays we might have bacon and eggs, homemade waffles or cinnamon rolls. If you know me, then you know I am a pastry person. I cannot resist baked goods! One of my newest discoveries is this Wewalka (Ve-Vahl-ka) croissant dough.  I made these croissants last weekend as part of our Sunday Breakfast and they were a real hit. I have also made them without the Nutella filling and I like them both ways! 

Have you heard of Wewalka yet? They are a European dough company that recently expanded to the Charlotte market.  They currently offer four different products in the U.S.: Croissant Rolls Dough, Puff Pastry Dough, Bistro Style Pizza Dough and Family Style Pizza Dough.  We used the croissant rolls in this recipe but my other favorite product is the Family Style Pizza Dough.  Below is the recipe I used for the very simple, quick and easy Nutella croissants.      

Nutella Filled Wewalka Croissants

What you'll need:
  • 1 package Wewalka croissant rolls
  • A few tablespoons of Nutella (or cookie butter)
  • 1 egg for egg wash 

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Step 2: The package notes "large croissants" so I cut each piece in half. Instead of 6 large croissants, I made 12 smaller bite sized croissants.

Step 3: Fill each croissant with a generous sized spoonful of Nutella at the widest end.

Step 4: Roll up each croissant. Evenly space them out on the parchment paper. Then, brush with egg wash (this step is optional).

Step 5: Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 6: Enjoy (for breakfast or dessert, or snack!)

A few of my favorite things about this dough:
  • It comes on parchment paper which you are instructed to use while baking. There is almost zero cleanup.
  • With just a little egg wash, the dough browns perfectly and looks great.
  • They do not use bleached flour, animal by-products or high fructose corn syrup which makes Jake (and me) very happy. 
  • The finished product tastes amazing. Buttery, flaky, delicious. 

You can find Wewalka dough at Harris Teeter's in the Charlotte area. Have you tried it yet?

Happy Baking!
