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.  😉

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale

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

Instructions

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!

Tips!

  • 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!
