NOW this is something to JUMP OUT OF BED for!...I am a TRUE CROISSANT lover.
You could put just about anything on a croissant and I would devour it and be in pure heaven...THIS Croissant French Toast was over the top GREAT, WONDERFUL and AMAZING (you asked, so I just laid it all out there for you!). I know you are thinking, "Well, its only Monday and I don't want to go to all the bother on a "weekday" to make this, BUT let me tell you....you will be loving your life if you do...they just melt in your mouth!...BUT you COULD EVEN make them for dinner and surprise the family with "Breakfast for Dinner"...they will be in AWE when they get to eat this yumminess in place of "Hamburger Helper".......! A "MUST MAKE" for sure!!
Bit Of Heaven Croissant French Toast
8 large croissants
1/2 c. heavy cream
3 T. vanilla
2 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
Butter, for frying
Split the croissants in half through the middle, like you would if you were making a sandwich (giving you 2 pieces). Set aside. In a large bowl, combine cream, vanilla, sugar, eggs and cinnamon. Whip until mixed together. Set aside.
Heat a pancake griddle OR skillet over low heat. Place 1-2 T. butter into pan, Melt. Dip croissant into egg mixture, making sure to cover both sides. Place dipped croissant into hot melted butter in the pan. Turn heat up to 350 or "medium". Cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip to the other side and cook it another 3 minutes. Be careful not to burn them...don't turn the heat up too high. Continue until all croissants are cooked. Slice strawberries and place them in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with sugar, let sit for 5-7 minutes (do this while your croissants are cooking). Serve Croissant French Toast with sliced strawberries and whipped topping OR butter and syrup....seriously a BIT OF HEAVEN!!
