Bring inspired French flavor to your brunch table this weekend. Stale croissants work best in this recipe, so pick them up mid-week and try to resist the temptation to gobble them up before it's time. Top with fresh strawberry syrup and sweetened whipped cream.

How to Make It

Step 1

Slice croissants in half lengthwise.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add four croissant halves, and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; top with Sweetened Whipped Cream, if desired, and Fresh Strawberry Syrup.

My family loved this! I also did not make the syrup, I used the pancake house strawberry syrup. I followed the directions and it was so easy to make. Its a keeper.

Made these this morning and loved it! I used soy milk and didn't use the Powdered Sugar, Whipped Cream, or Syrup. It was so sweet with the croissants, vanilla and strawberries combined that we just ate it how it was. I did add a bit of Honey on one and that was delicious, too! Loved it!

Wonderful Brunch Recipe! I made as directed except agreed with other uses about the syrup being too thin. The second time around I added a little bit of Strawberry Monin to the syrup and it turned out PERFECT!

Very good; although, I'm sure it's very high in fat & calories (using croissants alone) so this is something that I'd only indulge in once in a while.

The croissant french toast was very good, but I thought the strawberry syrup was anything but a "syrup." It turned out like something I'd serve on shortcake. The strawberry syrup needs to be thickened to turn this into a 5-star recipe

This is an outstanding french toast recipe. I have made this numerous times for family get togethers and it has been a hit each time. I would not change a thing including the syrup!! Will continue to keep in my recipes for future use.
