Fabulous Croissant French Toast

Total Time

I got this recipe from my grandma. I love to make this recipe when we have company. It's easy but they think I worked very hard on it.


  1. Beat eggs and cream together, add triple sec, granulated sugar, orange zest and cinnamon and whisk together.
  2. Pour into a shallow bowl or pie plate.
  3. Dip each croissant half in mixture, turning once.
  4. Melt a few tablespoons of butter in skillet over medium heat, add as many croissant halves that will fit and fry until golden brown, repeat with any remaining croissants.
  5. Put on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar, I also like to add a slice or two of oranges to each plate.
  6. Syrup and butter is optional, I like it with both, but my mom eats it plain.
  7. Cooking time is approximate.

This is a real taste treat. I decreased the amount of cinnamon and was glad that I did. I had to use orange juice in place of the triple sec but I am sure the triple sec would be even better. We all enjoyed this and will be making it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This is a wonderful recipe!!! I used regular orange juice, because I didn't have Triple Sec, and the results were great! The orange zest and juice make this a very bright, springtime recipe that I will make many times in the future. I sprinkled the croissants with powdered sugar, and put orange slices for garnish, and my plate looked like it came from a fancy restaraunt--very impressive looking, and even better tasting!! Thanks for posting! Teresa
