Load them up with deliciousness!

Top your croissant french toast with whipped cream and the strawberry syrup! We actually like to put spoonfuls of whipped cream between the croissant halves then top with the strawberry syrup…it’s like a stuffed croissant with a whipped cream layer of deliciousness! My kids also like to drizzle their toast with maple syrup. So SO good.

Strawberry French Toast Recipe Tips:

  • Croissants: Day old croissants are best (or even 2 or 3 day old)!
  • Milk: You can use 2% or whole milk.
  • Strawberry Syrup: Make with fresh or frozen strawberries. You can puree the syrupy jam or you can leave the strawberries chunky, it’s a personal preference, and both are delicious.
  • Strawberry Syrup Option: If you don’t want to make the fresh strawberry syrup, you could warm up some strawberry jam instead and drizzle that over your toast.
  • Options: We love strawberries but any type of fresh berry or frozen berries would also be amazing!
  • Easily Doubled! This recipe is easily doubled if you’re feeding a crowd! Or even tripled.
  • Make Ahead Tip: If you’re serving a large crowd, you can make the French toast ahead of time, place them on a baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil and keep in a 250 degree F oven until you’re ready to serve.
  • Leftovers: Keep any leftovers covered in an airtight dish in the fridge for 2 – 3 days. Just reheat in the microwave.

Ingredients

Units Scale

Croissant French Toast:

  • 6 large croissants
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Fresh Strawberry Syrup:

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Whipped Cream:

  • whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Instructions

Making the Fresh Strawberry Syrup:

  1. Make the syrup first.
  2. Clean and hull the strawberries, then slice and add to a saucepan with the sugar.
  3. Cook on low – medium heat until the mixture is syrup-like, and the strawberries are cooked.
  4. At this point you can leave the syrup chunky, or puree it. I like to leave the strawberries chunky.
  5. Set aside. You might need to warm it up a bit before serving.

Making the Whipped Cream:

  1. Using a stand mixer, whip the whipping cream and sugar together until stiff. Set aside.

Making the Croissant French Toast:

  1. Whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla. I like to use a hand blender to do this.
  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 skillet or frying pan until golden brown, making sure to flip half way through, about 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve with the strawberry syrup and whipped cream and enjoy right away!
