  • 4 large croissants, preferably day-old
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for serving
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Fresh berries or fruit, for garnish (optional)


  1. Slice the croissants in half lengthwise, as if you were going to make a sandwich.
  2. In a large, shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a dab of butter and let it melt.

  6. Continue with the remaining croissant halves, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.
