Ingredients

  • 6 large croissants
  • 3 eggs (you need 1 whole egg plus 2 yolks)
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • butter for pan

Instructions

  • Take the croissants and slice each in half, so you have a lot of surface area.
  • In a casserole dish, add the 1 egg plus 2 egg yolks. Add the milk, sugar, lemon zest, and whisk with a fork or whisk until well combined.
  • Take a griddle or skillet and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add butter to the pan and swirl or spread so that butter is coating the pan or griddle.
  • Dip the croissant halves into the egg/milk mixture, and flip so each side is coated in the egg mixture. Add to the griddle and cook until golden brown. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  • Continue with all the slices of croissant.
  • Plate, adding 3 croissant halves to each plate. Top as desired (we love strawberries and soft whipped cream).
