3/4 cupmilk
2large eggs
1 teaspoonvanilla extract (use 2 tsp if you like)
2 tablespoonsbutter
whipped cream -- (optional topping)
Fresh Strawberry Syrup (see next recipe)

  • Slice croissants in half lengthwise
  • Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture, coating well.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat. Add four croissant halves, and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until puffy and golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar; top with Whipped Cream if desired, and Fresh Strawberry Syrup.

Serving Ideas : Sprinkle a few blueberries on top for a colorful presentation.

NOTE: If croissants are not stale, they will not absorb the batter as fully, and will not plump as much when cooked.
