Croissant French Toast

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"Had this at brunch in upstate New York and fell in love from first bite. I had never heard of it before nor seen a recipe, so had to try and record myself! Since croissants are naturally buttery, there is less need for butter or syrup as you would traditional French toast. Tastes especially great with either apricot pineapple jam or strawberries as shown."

  1. Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray the griddle with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk eggs together in a bowl until smooth. Add half-and-half, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to eggs and whisk until frothy.
  3. Dunk croissants, 1 at a time, into egg mixture just until both sides are coated.
  4. Cook croissants on the hot griddle, split-side down, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until second side is golden brown, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining croissants. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar over croissants.

It was good. I usually put sugar in the egg mixture. I think I'd have preferred it that way.

These are fantastic! I love this, thank you.

It was a tasty way to use up some stale croissants.

Good- I like thicker cuts of bread for my French toast, like cabala, but harder to freeze. Croissants are always in my freezer (bulk fm Costco), so I can whip this up anytime.

These are amazing!Try them!
