This croissant French toast with fresh strawberry syrup can be partially made ahead and easily prepared the next morning for a show stopping brunch dish that will draw raves from guests.
This croissant French toast with fresh strawberry syrup truly is one of the yummiest things I’ve ever eaten, and everyone literally raves over this dish. It only calls for a few simple, fresh ingredients that come together to make a treat for the eyes and palate. If you want a winning recipe to make for special guests, this is one for the books.
My first taste of this croissant French toast with fresh strawberry syrup was at Brock’s restaurant at the Birmingham Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa. My family was enjoying Brock’s fabulous breakfast buffet and raving over this dish to our server. Minutes later, she brings me a printed copy of the Southern Living recipe found here on MyRecipes.
Savvy suggestion: The combination of fresh ingredients in this dish is what makes it so spectacular. Fresh, real butter, eggs, cream are all key players, as are the freshest, ripest strawberries that you can find.
Make ahead: Several steps can be done ahead of time to make this dish MUCH easier to prepare the morning of serving.
- Buy croissants 2-3 days before making the dish; they need to be stale for best results.
- Make strawberry syrup the night before and refrigerate overnight. Simply reheat just before serving.
- Make freshly whipped cream the night before. Slightly under whip; whisk to “fluff” the next morning.
- Measure and set out all other ingredients you’ll need for the next morning.
Savvy Kitchen Tools:
- If making this for a large group, I always use this inexpensive 22″ electric griddle. It is large enough to make all the French toast at once without using any of my cook top burners.
- I whip and store my fresh whipped cream in this pyrex 8-cup glass bowl with lid.
- I use this hand held mixer for fast & easy whipping of fresh cream.
- White bread or dessert plates showcase this stunning dish; link to some of my favorites below.
