strawberry_croissant_fr_toastA delicious French toast, made with croissants and served with a strawberry compote, this unusual and delicious variation on French toast is really a winner.

Makes 4 servings.

  • 4 large croissants — day-old (stale)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (use 2 tsp if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • whipped cream — (optional topping)
  • Fresh Strawberry Syrup (see next recipe)
  • Powdered sugar
  • Slice croissants in half lengthwise

Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture, coating well.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat. Add four croissant halves, and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until puffy and golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar; top with Whipped Cream if desired, and Fresh Strawberry Syrup.

Serving Ideas : Sprinkle a few blueberries on top for a colorful presentation.

NOTE: If croissants are not stale, they will not absorb the batter as fully, and will not plump as much when cooked.
