  1. Place bacon slices on the griddle plates in the flat position.  Insert plates on griddle side.  Set the Cuisinart®  Griddler®  Compact between Medium and High and preheat.  Cook until bacon is completely cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove and reserve on paper towels to drain. Carefully wipe any excess grease from the griddle and turn heat down to Medium.
  2. Gently crack eggs right onto griddle and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.  Once set, flip egg until cooked easy or until desired doneness.  Remove and place on croissant bottom, top each with bacon and slices of cheese to cover.  Finish with croissant top.
  3. Place sandwiches on bottom plate and carefully, with oven mitts, adjust the grill to close. Carefully grill sandwich in closed position until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
