|Ingredients: milk, eggs, butter, croissants and vanilla extract|
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!
