Recipe: Croissant French Toast

I have wanted to try this recipe for awhile.  Like pretty much all my fabulous ideas of late, I found it on Pinterest.  We tried it out this weekend.  Original recipe is from My Recipes.  I tweaked a little because I didn't have or want to make Strawberry Syrup.

Ingredients: milk, eggs, butter, croissants and vanilla extract
As with all French Toast, this is super healthy!  I kid.

Use day-old croissants.  Whisk up the eggs, milk, and vanilla.  Half the croissants then dredge them in the egg mixture.  Melt some butter in your skillet or griddle.  Cook croissants about 2 minutes on each side.  I needed less time as the pan got hotter and hotter.



Plate up, cover with butter, syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit, whatever your fancy.  We used butter, syrup, and/or whipped cream.  They were tasty. 


We rarely have French Toast because I won't eat it if it's made with your everyday sandwich bread.  And I don't like that I would have buy special bread, so this was an easy alternative.  Flavor-wise, it's not any different!
