Croissant French Toast


Prep Time:

15 minutes

Cooking Time:

30 minutes


Makes 8 servings


  • 1 15-ounce can Luck's Fried Apples
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier (optional)
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 8 medium croissants
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


Combine partially drained apples, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Warm on low heat for 5 minutes. Turn heat off, but leave pan on burner, and add cranberries and Grand marnier. Cover for 10 minutes to plump cranberries, then remove cover.

Meanwhile, mix all batter ingredients in a large bowl. Cut a small piece off the top of each croissant using a sharp knife. Place them in batter, soak through, then remove with tongs. Sit on plate to allow excess batter to drain off. Melt a pat of butter in a skillet on low-medium heat. Cook croissants about 7 minutes on each side. Then bake in an oven-safe pan for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. Plate with fruit and syrup.

Option: Swap this topping for peaches cooked with sugar and a splash of peach schnapps.
