CROISSANT FRENCH TOAST
2 large Croissants, split in half
3 large Eggs
1/4 cup Milk (or 1/2 & 1/2 for richer batter)
1 tablespoon Honey
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 tablespoon Butter
Fruit Jam (I had homemade blackberry that a friend made)
Lemon Curd (i had a small jar from Trader Joe's)
Powdered Sugar (for sprinkling on top)
Beat together the Eggs, Milk, Honey and Vanilla Extract in a shallow dish. Coat each side of the Croissant halves in the mixture. Set aside on a plate as you prepare the pan.
Heat a large non stick fry pan to medium heat. Add enough Canola Oil to pan to very lightly coat the pan. Now add the Butter to the pan. Once it is all melted together, begin frying your French Toast, cooking until each side is a nice medium brown, about 3 - 4 minutes on each side.
This is great to serve with butter and syrup, but to make it a show stopper special, top with a little bit of good berry jam and a really nice Lemon Curd (I am always buying this at Trader Joe’s or when we are on trips). You can be ambitious and make your own if you are so inclined. Sprinkle on some fresh berries and a little powdered sugar and it’s soooo good! Oh, that bacon on the side is just the right touch of salty to cut some of the sweet. Give this one a try!
