Croissant French Toast

in Breakfast

Last weekend I went to Nashville, TN. Did you miss me? I missed you.

I had never been to Nashville before, so I’m marking “Explore a new city” off my birthday goal list. Score!

I visited someone… special. Not totally ready to blog about that yet. I shopped. I got to meet Coury, whose blog I have been a fan of for around a year now. And I ate a lot of good food. Way too much good food. One morning I got croissant french toast-and it was amazing!


It’s such a simple, but genius concept. Make french toast (here’s my method) but use croissants instead of french bread. Duh.

I made these for my roomies this weekend, and my niece said it was delicious. Pretty good descriptive word for a two-year old. Made me feel real proud.

Bottom line-this is probably going to become my go-to breakfast for guests. Do you have a special dish you prepare for family or friends for breakfast?

xo. Emma

Wow! Could this look any more delicious? Your’s look perfect and I feel like I might squish up the croissant trying to slice it but I’m sure it would taste like buttery decadence anyway. Thanks.

My mom always makes me french toast for breakfast when I come home to visit. Makes me feel like a kid all over again!

Hummmmm… looks like someone is happy, and not just because there’s really good food involved.

Meredith February 6, 2012 at 10:28 pm

That looks absolutely scrumptious! Im glad you enjoyed Nashville. I live four hours away, and love to visit.

You read my mind! I made croissant french toast this weekend! I got the idea from a restaurant I went to years ago in Miami.

Margherita February 6, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Love this recipe and not too complicated either. Gonna have to give a try really soon!

If you are ever in a Los Angeles, there is a very cute little vintage house turned restaurant that makes an amazing french toast croissant topped with pecans, maple syrup and raspberry butter.. yours look so delish!

Looks yummy! You can French toast any bread/cake …try pound cake or some yummy brioche.

Siobhan/Facets of the Fabulous February 7, 2012 at 11:14 am

Ooooohh, that look’s scrummy! My top ‘special’ breakfast is kinda similar, french toasted crumpets, they turn in to the gorgeous tasty reseviour of buttery eggy goodness, great with fruit, or more often than not, Nutella.

Juliette February 7, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Mmhh looks delicious, I guess your niece was right! I once made real croissants. They aren’t easy to make but it was a huge success. I’m looking forward to making them again! Or maybe I could try pain-au-chocolat this time, even better!

Carmen Mariah February 7, 2012 at 6:34 pm

You, my dear, are a food genius. I would have never thought of subbing croissants for regular bread. Can’t wait to try this!

jayne February 7, 2012 at 9:06 pm

Oh yum – this looks amazing! I’ve been enjoying your recipe for Apple Dumpling Cinnamon Rolls for special breakfasts but I’ll have to try this now too!

Jessica February 7, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Sheesh these look really good. Speaking of things to put syrup on, I got my fam to try blueberry syrup!!! Eeep! I could just see it now…drizzling it over these crowsawnts :)

Coury February 7, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Hopefully this means you’ll be coming back often……I see a lot of friend time in the future…. :) :) :)

this is just too good to be true. my 2 favorite breakfasts – croissants and french toast!!!

Lauern February 13, 2012 at 11:57 pm

I made this as a surprise valentines breakfast for my boyfriend this morning (complete with heart shaped banana and strawberry pieces) and he loved it!

I don’t know who was more surprised, him about the breakfast, or me that it worked! I’m not much of a cook and I’d never made french toast before but your recipe was so simple. Thanks Emma!

It was so delicious I am going to make it many more times and I’m feeling a little braver about trying some other recipes.

Sammi February 15, 2012 at 10:00 am

Oh, dear Lord…This looks amazing.

Nat March 13, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Gawd, this sounds delicious.

Will be shoe-horning this into breakfasts going forwards, no question.

Thank you!!
