Equipment

  • cast iron skillet

Ingredients

  • 10 croissants day-old, cut into large chunks
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • fresh berries, maple syrup, and/or whipped cream for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a large cast iron skillet with butter.
  • Place the croissant pieces into the skillet and arrange them so the top is level.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon until well combined.
  • Pour the liquid over the croissant pieces in the skillet and toss just a little bit if necessary, to make sure all the croissant pieces are moistened.
  • Bake for 60-75 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, covering with aluminum foil after 25-30 minutes to prevent the top from browning too much.
  • Remove it from the oven when cooked through (about 60-75 minutes) and let stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with fresh berries, maple syrup and/or whipped cream if desired.
