Delicious Sunday Morning Breakfast

    I have a love/hate relationship with my grocery store. I hate that they are always trying to sell  expired food, and I love that they try to sell it for 1/2 price. If you have a need for the food that day, or you have a large enough freezer, you can rack up some serious savings.
    I was at the grocery store the other day, looking through their shelf of day old bread, and I came across this huge container of stale croissants, for just a dollar. I was instantly reminded of this Croissant French Toast. I'm always up for a great Sunday morning breakfast, and I haven't made this in quite some time. You'll be amazed by how replacing your standard bread for croissants really adds something special to classic French toast.

Croissant French Toast:

Croissant French Toast and Bacon.
Garnished with berries, whip cream and
powdered sugar.

4 Croissants, preferably one or two days old
4 Lg. Eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
cooking spray
berries and whip cream, as garnish
warm maple syrup

(1) Slice the croissants in half, lengthwise.
(2) In a shallow dish, combine the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.

(3) Coat a large skillet with cooking spray, and preheat heat to medium high.
(4) Soak the croissant slices in the egg mixture on both sides.

(5) Once the croissants have absorbed a fair amount of the egg mixture, transfer to the preheated pan.
(6) Cook until golden brown on both sides. You will know they are done, when the bread no longer appears wet.

(8) Garnish with berries and whip cream. Serve with warm maple syrup.

There are no words.

*This Recipe yields 4 servings.
