Orange Croissant Breakfast Casserole

by Laura

Sorry I’m late with today’s post. My kids are out this week for spring break and I haven’t been able to get to this until now. This orange croissant breakfast casserole recipe combines two or my favorite flavors for breakfast.

First is orange, I love anything orange flavored especially for breakfast. For me, it really does taste like sunshine, that is if you could taste sunshine! Then there is croissants. They are buttery and flaky and another items I love at breakfast time.

This casserole is made ahead of time and would be perfect to serve for Easter breakfast if you haven’t planned anything yet. If not, it’s still perfect to serve on a spring morning or would also work well for Mother’s Day.
