Strawberry Croissant French Toast

This Strawberry Croissant French Toast is a delicious twist on classic french toast.  This easy brunch recipe is made with buttery croissants and served with a homemade fresh strawberry syrup.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, May 13), I thought it would be a great time to rewind and give another great recipe a chance at the spotlight! We always like to have a nice breakfast on Mother’s Day, so I thought this recipe would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch! It’s so easy to make, and such a crowd pleaser!

I think it will be on our menu this year! Except that my hubby won’t be home for Mother’s Day this year. It’s just me & the kids…no guilt trip here honey.  Nope.  None at all. Don’t worry about me.  All alone.  With the kids.  Making my own Mother’s Day breakfast. Sniff.  😉

This Strawberry Croissant French Toast is a delicious twist on classic french toast.  This easy brunch recipe is made with buttery croissants and served with a homemade fresh strawberry syrup.



Croissant French Toast:

  • 46 large croissants
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • powdered sugar
  • whipped cream

Fresh Strawberry Syrup:

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries (1 clamshell)
  • 1/22/3 cup granulated sugar


Making the Croissant French Toast:

  1. Whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla.
  2. Cut the croissants into halves horizontally. Then dip them into the egg mixture, coating well.
  3. Cook the croissants on a large non-stick surface until golden brown, making sure to flip half way through, about 2 minutes on each side.

Making the Fresh Strawberry Syrup:

  1. Cut the strawberries into quarters, and add them to a saucepan with the sugar (add sugar to taste).
  2. Cook on low-med heat until the mixture is syrup-like, and the strawberries are cooked.
  3. At this point you can leave the syrup chunky, or puree it. I pureed mine, as we like this better.
  4. Enjoy!

Let’s eat!

Top the croissant french toast with whipped cream, a little powdered sugar and the strawberry syrup!


  • For the syrup, you could use frozen strawberries too.  Just unthaw them and continue with the recipe.
  • Or use any berry you like!  I bet raspberries or blueberries would be amazing!

    I LOVE croissants!! Instead of getting a donut at Safeway, I always get a sugar glazed croissant with chocolate drizzle. I’m sure it’s way worse for me than a regular donut, but they are soo good! I will definitely be trying this recipe. Thanks for sharing, again. ; )

    Have a great weekend!

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Awesome blog by the way!
