French Toast and Croissants – what a perfect combination! I have to admit, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and come weekends I enjoy being able to make a hearty breakfast. For our New Year’s Day brunchfast (it was brunch and it was fast 🙂 ) I decided to try something new and it was a major hit. The flaky croissants seasoned with cinnamon and sweet cream was a mouth-warming treat to start our day.
For this recipe I added Coffee-Mate Sweet Italian Sweet Cream for a special touch.
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup of Coffee-Mate Italian Sweet Creme
3 lrg eggs
1 1/2 tspn vanilla extract
1 tspn vanilla
1 tspn cinnamon
bakery croissants (this recipe I used 10 mini croissants)
Add ingredients in mixing bowl and using an egg beater whip real good,until well blended. Slice open each croissant and dip into the egg batter making sure top and bottom are covered. Place each one on a dish to keep. Heat frying pan on medium heat. Once pan is heated slice a pat of butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Add croissants and flip once side is slightly golden. Once other side is golden remove and place on separate warming dish. Serve warm with butter and syrup. You can also top with fruit, nuts or powdered sugar .
Paired with scrambled eggs and sausage links, the family was enjoying every delectable bite. I love hearing the “mmmms after they taste the first bite
To add to the family brunch soiree – I also made a Brunch Punch. If you remember I spoke about featuring a Punch Bowl Social on the blog, so this was perfect to add to the selection.
The simple punch included:
2 1/2 cups Orange Juice
2 1/2 cups Passion Fruit Juice
1 1/2 cups Prosecco
You can add more of either to your desired taste, but these three blend perfectly together for a brunch soiree!
I hope I’ve inspired you to get cooking and have brunchfast for your next get-together. As always – cooking is easy with “TLC” – TwinsLuvCooking
