Croissant French Toast



Kathleen made this last weekend for breakfast.  Both she and Jenna loved it!  They just ate this with syrup.

8 whole Croissants (a Rounder Shape Is Best)
5 whole Eggs
1/4 cup Half-and-half
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Butter, For Frying And Serving
Warm Syrup, For Serving
Strawberries, For Serving (optional)
Whipped Cream, For Serving (optional)

Split the croissants in half through the middle.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Dunk each croissant half into the mixture so that it's fully coated. Set pieces aside on a plate.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat, then melt a small amount of butter. Add as many pieces as will fit, cut side down, then increase the heat very slightly (don't go above medium-low).

Allow the toast to cook on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes. Move it around in the skillet a bit to make sure it doesn't burn. When it's deep golden brown on the surface, flip it to the other side and let it cook for another 2 minutes or so.

Remove from the pan and cook the rest of the croissant halves.

Serve a top and bottom piece together with butter, warm syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream.
