Makes 4 servings
4 large croissants -- day-old (stale)
Slice croissants in half lengthwise. Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture, coating well. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat. Add four croissant halves, and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until puffy and golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; top with Whipped Cream if desired, and Fresh Strawberry Syrup. Serving Ideas: Sprinkle a few blueberries on top for a colorful presentation.
NOTE: If croissants are not stale, they will not absorb the batter as fully, and will not plump as much when cooked.
