Blueberry. Cheesecake. French. Toast.

As much as I want to, I can't take credit for this recipe. This was served at my bed & breakfast experience in Asheville and the chef was kind enough to give me her recipe.

(Also check out the puff pastry asparagus cigars!)

When I found out this french toast was made from CROISSANTS I couldn't believe I had never heard of such a thing.

Game changer.

Literally I'm surprised I even had a second to take a few phone shots in between stuffing my face.

One day, I will remake this recipe and take more extensive photos for you guys!

But for the time being I can't trust myself to make this recipe all for myself. Next time I have a brunch party, perhaps. In the meantime, I will simply have to relive the experience through these couple snapshots.

Note that you do need to make it the night before, to give the croissants time to soak up all the liquid. WORTH IT!

Notes

  • If using frozen blueberries, it helps to toss them in a bit of flour before adding to mixture so it doesn't all turn blue!

Do you bake this covered or uncovered?

I do uncovered, but if you prefer a crispy top it may help to do at least the first half of baking time covered!

This took over an hour to set up for me! I followed directions to a tee, what happened? Is it normal to take a bit longer sometimes?
