The Big First Post

I love cooking for my family so for the first post I want to share a great recipe. It’s not the healthiest but is perfect for a special day. This recipe is modified from one I found online.

Croissant French Toast

Serves 4

 2 large croissants  2 large eggs  1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract  1 cup milk  2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1. Using a serrated knife, carefully slice each croissant in half and set aside.

2. Whisk together the eggs, vanilla and milk in a large shallow pan or bowl.

3. Set a large heavy skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of the butter. When it starts to foam, dip two of the croissant halves briefly in the egg and milk mixture, turning to coat both sides. (Do not leave them in the liquid, as they will become soggy.) Add them to the pan and cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to a plate and keep covered in a warm oven while you repeat with the rest of the croissants. Serve the french toast with syrup (optional).
