Kewpie Synergy

The charm of this sandwich is further enhanced by the combination of KEWPIE Mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. This duo brings an amazing twist to the classic ham and cheese pairing. KEWPIE Mayonnaise, with its creamy texture and subtle umami notes, melds perfectly with the sharp, tangy character of Dijon mustard. Together, they create a spread that’s not just a condiment but a crucial element that ties all the flavors together, adding depth and complexity to each bite.


Serves 1

  • 1 croissant
  • 2 slices of ham
  • 2 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. KEWPIE Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard


  1. Preparation: Carefully slice the croissant in half lengthwise. On each cut side, spread a layer of KEWPIE Mayonnaise, followed by a smear of Dijon mustard.
  2. Assembly: Place the ham and Swiss cheese on the bottom half of the croissant. Gently press the other half on top to form the sandwich.
  3. Toasting: Wrap the sandwich in aluminum foil and toast in a toaster oven for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Unwrap and toast for an additional minute to crisp the top of the croissant.

Kewpie Pro Tip

To perfect your Ham & Cheese Croissant, the key lies in the balance of flavors and the texture of the croissant. Ensure the croissant is fresh and of high quality, as it’s the foundation of your sandwich. The ham should be savory but not overpowering, and the Swiss cheese a perfect melt. When applying the KEWPIE Mayonnaise and Dijon mustard, aim for an even, light spread to complement, not dominate, the other ingredients. The final toasting step is crucial – it’s where the croissant transforms into a warm, crispy delight.
