Croissants a L'orange

Croissants a L'orange created by Bev I Am

I found this recipe in a holiday magazine a couple of years ago and it's become a family favorite ever since. It's sort of like a fancy bread pudding, yet not quite, so I hesitate to really term it a bread pudding because in this case the croissants don't dissolve into the other ingredients like a normal bread pudding would, so the texture is much different. The orange flavor gives it a wonderful taste too.

ingredients

directions

  • Spray two 3-quart glass baking dishes with non-stick pan spray.
  • Or grease baking dishes with butter.
  • Cut croissants lengthwise with bottom being about 2/3 and top sliver 1/3 and arrange six in each baking dish.
  • Thin marmalade with orange juice and spoon some over each bottom half of croissant.
  • Replace croissant tops.
  • Beat eggs, cream, extract and rind.
  • Pour over croissants.
  • Spoon remaining thinned marmalade on top as a glaze.
  • Allow to soak overnight.
  • Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until firm.
  • Serve hot, garnished with orange slices and strawberries.
  • May also be topped with a spoonful of whipped cream.
  • Note: I can easily buy croissants in the bakery section of my supermarket (Sara Lee brand also has a frozen variety). However, I found that the ones I get are very large so I have to cut them to fit in a baking dish and may not get all 6 in (usually use 13 x 9 inch glass pans), but it will work fine as long as you fill the pan even if you need to use less than 6 croissants, Also if I'm taking these to a friends house I will use those throw away aluminum baking tins.

    I have made this recipe often and just today brought it to a New Year's Day party that I was invited to...It disappeared immediately and quite a few people at the party asked me for the recipe. Very easy to make. A winner!!!!
