Jazmin’s Bakery, a longtime staple of downtown Newhall, offers a quick breakfast option with a kick. Amid the racks of cakes, pastries and desserts are their croissants.
While their chocolate croissant is good, look for one marked with a jalapeño slice on top. That’s the one you want. It’s baked with a sausage patty, cheese and jalapeño slices inside.
It’s filling (carbs + protein + fats) with just enough heat that wakes up the tongue. Eat it just the way it is; or, if you have time at home, cut the croissant in half, scramble or fry up a couple eggs and stuff them inside. It’s large enough to share, too. (Unless you have a gargantuan appetite.)
The jalapeño sausage croissant won’t break the budget at $3.50, either.
