What are your favorite croissants to serve for breakfast
The key to an amazing Croissant French Toast Bake is…you guessed it…amazing croissants! I have recently fallen head over heels in LOVE with Marketside All Butter Croissants found at Walmart. I love that they’re inspired by French baking, set at an affordable price point, available all over the country, and made with all butter. They’re great paired with any meal (I personally love croissants as our rolls at every holiday meal), but especially tasty at breakfast.
When you pair a French Toast Casserole Recipe with these flakey and buttery croissants, it’s a match made in heaven. All you have to do is head to your local Walmart to pick up a package (in the bakery section). Is your mouth watering yet? While you’re there pick up these other key ingredients for making this Berries and Cream French Toast Bake:
- Cream Cheese
- Maple Syrup
Im willing to bet you have a lot of those ingredients in your fridge and pantry already. You’re so close to tasting the BEST breakfast recipe ever…can you taste it?
Can this Croissant French Toast Casserole be made in advance?
Yes! It can be prepared the night before and then baked in the morning. You can also make it right before baking if that’s easier for you. Letting it sit overnight will result in a softer texture once baked, but it’s all what you prefer. Totally up to you!
Can French Toast Casserole be frozen?
Yes! I love that this easy Berries and Cream French Toast Bake can be made ahead, frozen, and then thawed and served when you’re ready. Talk about convenient! Here are our tips if you’d like to freeze this recipe:
- Bake according to the recipe
- Allow to cool completely
- Once cooled, wrap fully (in dish) in two layers of plastic wrap and then one layer of foil.
- Freeze up to three months
- Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge
- Remove plastic wrap and cover once more in foil
- Heat in the oven for approximately 20 minutes (covered) at 350F or until heated through to your liking
- To cook from frozen, remove plastic wrap and cover with foil, and then bake at 350F for one hour
- NOTE: Of the two options, I prefer it reheated AFTER thawing best
