I am so excited to share today’s recipe with you. This peachy croissant bake is a new family favorite. I’ve all ready made it several times.
It is quite simple to make and is made the night before. It’s like a french toast bake, but not exactly. My one son is not a fan of any french toast bake recipes I have made before because of the texture. It’s too eggy for him. However, he LOVES this one.
The base of this recipe is store bought croissants. You’re gonna want to be checking the day old section of your bakery for croissants to make this. Then the croissants get coated with a milk/egg mixture. It’s a light enough mixture that it basically just adds moisture to the croissants and holds them together.
Then comes the peaches, oh we love peaches! Finally, it gets finished off with a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon. The brown sugar adds nice little bit of crunchy sugar to the top and cinnamon adds that nice comfort flavor. It really is amazing! You must all try this!
