I’m a huge breakfast fan, I don’t care if it is sweet or savory breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. I love sitting down enjoying whatever it is with a cup of coffee.

This delicious Blueberry Croissant French Toast has been one of my favorite breakfast meals for a long time. The flavors really work together and it’s made with croissants, can you get any better?

I love this dish, like literally love. With a tasty sauce made with blueberries and orange you really get a nice flavor to each and every single bite.

Plus this is baked in the oven unlike your traditional french toast, so there is another fun aspect. You could call this a bake as well since it is technically baked.

But no more standing over a hot stove making your french toast one by one, this Blueberry Croissant French Toast has you covered with it all being in one pan!

Some of my other favorite breakfast dishes include: Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls, Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake and Baked Coconut Donut Holes.

  • Being baked saves time rather than flipping each individual french toast.

Ingredients needed to make Blueberry Croissant French Toast

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY CROISSANT FRENCH TOAST:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9”x13” baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, vanilla extract and syrup. Whisk until smooth. 
  3. Dip each croissant piece in the mixture and cover entirely. Dip the bottom slices first and top with about 1/2 cup blueberries. Next dip all top half croissant pieces into the mixture and place inside the baking dish, on top of their bottom piece. Top with additional blueberries, about ½ cup. 
  4. Once all of the croissants have been fully coated with the mixture and placed inside the baking dish, place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until the tops of your croissants are golden brown. 
  5. While the croissants are baking, mix together your blueberry-orange sauce. 
  6. Over medium heat combine 1 cup blueberries, orange juice, sugar, cornstarch and orange zest. Stir until sauce thickens. 
  7. Continue stirring for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce has reached a jelly-like consistency. Pour in a heat resistant bowl and set aside. 
  8. When baking time is complete for the croissants, carefully remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10minutes. 
  9. Once cooled, begin serving immediately topping with blueberry-orange sauce.

WHAT SIZE CROISSANTS DO I USE?

We use the large bakery-style croissants for this recipe. You can use the smaller ones but I would double the number of croissants but the amount of the other ingredients should still work.

CAN THIS BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! You can make this up to 24 hours ahead of time which will make breakfast a breeze in the morning because all you will need to do is stick it in the oven and bake.

Make sure to cover tightly with plastic wrap while refrigerating so nothing dries out and 24 hours should be the maximum time it should be made ahead.

WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH THIS?

This can be served with any of your other favorite breakfast staples or alone as itself. We like to eat it with bacon, sausage, eggs, fruit salad, other fruits, etc.

Whatever you want to serve alongside this Blueberry Croissant French Toast will be fine!

HOW TO STORE:

This Croissant French Toast will keep covered tightly in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can reheat your portions in the microwave or in the oven at the lowest setting until heated through.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Just like bread pudding and other bakes, slightly stale bread works best.
  • You can use smaller croissants, just double them.
  • The sauce is optional, you could also serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
  • Use any fruit that you like, we love blueberries but this would be good with strawberries or raspberries, etc.
  • This can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time stored in the refrigerator.
