Ooh La La! Give a Breakfast Croissant the French-Toast Treatment

French Toast CroissantsFrench Toast Croissants

This delicious breakfast dish could become a staple of your Saturday mornings. During the week, our family goes pretty basic for breakfast - cold cereal, yogurt, a banana, or a frozen muffin. But on the weekend, we love to sit down together and have a delicious, unhurried breakfast. It makes every weekend feel like something to celebrate! Everyone in our family loves croissants, so this French toast variation was an obvious choice for a recent Saturday morning. They were even better than I'd hoped!

French Toast Croissants

6 croissants
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Helpful Tip: These really are best if you use a slightly stale croissant. If yours are fresh, leave them on the counter overnight before making them!

Notes: Serves 3 - 4

1. In a shallow 9x9 baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla. On a separate plate, combine the cinnamon and sugar.

2. Slice your croissants in half (like you were making a sandwich with them). Place them in the egg mixture and let soak for about a minute. Flip them over and let them soak for another minute. Dip the cut sides in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

3. Cook in a frying pan or on a griddle for about three minutes, starting with the cinnamon side down. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, until the egg mixture is no longer runny.

4. Let sit for about five minutes before serving, plain or with fresh fruit, maple syrup or whipped cream.
