Enjoy an easy and most delicious breakfast that is always a crowd pleaser, Berries, and Cream Stuffed French Toast Croissants! A perfect Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Day breakfast!
We have many food celebration days, today is one that is a personal favorite, National French Toast Day! To celebrate, I have teamed with a few of my favorite food bloggers to celebrate! I am sharing a family favorite, Berries and Cream French Toast Stuffed Croissants because it is absolutely yummy! This french toast is super versatile to please everyone in the family! I can adjust the fruit if needed to please everyone.
My family is not any different from most..we are always running and the day starts early! Usually a quick bowl of cereal, ready-made Healthy Vegetable Egg Muffin Cup , Avocado Egg Toast, or a quick Smoothie! When we have a weekend day, or a Holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas, we make it count! I love a relaxing morning with lots of fun, laughter and great food. Berries and Cream Stuffed French Toast Croissants delivers a delish breakfast that makes everyone happy!
Everyday Tips to make Berries and Cream Stuffed French Toast Croissants:
- Bring the low-fat cream cheese to room temperature, makes it easier to blend.
- Using almond extract brings a different flavor that I prefer, vanilla extract works as well.
- The cream cheese layer is thin because it packs a lot of flavor.
- I use bananas and fresh raspberries. Feel free to adjust the fruit to your families taste.
- When fresh fruit is unavailable, add fresh fruit preserves to the base of the croissant, also delicious.
- Use your impeccably clean hands to carefully coat the croissants with the egg wash and flip them with the egg mixture to keep the fruit inside.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and these stuffed berry croissants are absolutely fabulous. I will say these stuffed croissants are a more indulgent breakfast for my family. The stuffed croissants are perfect for special days like Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Day morning. With that said, my boys could eat these 3 times a day, yes 3 times a day! I will say, having my younger son home for the Holidays this year, I make these a lot! As having him home is a Holiday everyday!
I look forward to this recipe throughout the Holidays! My family talks about these croissants as the Holidays approach!
