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!

What you'll need

  • 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!


Serves 3 - 4

How to make it

  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.
