Ah weekends, the time when I love to spoil myself with a special breakfast. French Toast is best used with day old bread. You can use any type of bread you have on hand for this recipe. Using croissants in this takes it up a notch with the flaky buttery layers of pastry is so delicious. I love to garnish this with fresh fruit like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, or any fresh fruit I have on have on hand, then dust with powdered sugar and enjoy. Perfect for brunch and long weekends, this one is sure to please.
Yield: 2 servings
3 vegan croissants
3 flax eggs or liquid egg substitute
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
fresh berries or fruit you have on hand.
cooking oil, any kind you like (canola, coconut, vegetable, etc.)
Wash and slice any fruit you have and set aside.
Heat a medium size skillet pan over medium heat with a little oil.
Slice the croissants in half.
In a small bowl whisk the eggs, nutmeg, and cinnamon together.
Dip one croissant half at a time into the egg mixture and drip off excess egg mixture. When pan is hot, cook 1-2 croissants at a time about 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through and slightly golden. Continue this process until all croissants are cooked and plate 3 halves on each plate. Dress with fruit and dust with powdered sugar.
