Croissant French Toast & Strawberry Sauce

This beautiful piece of art on a plate comes from Southern Living magazine. I served this for a baby shower to RAVE reviews. It's melt in your mouth goodness, perfect for holiday feasts.

Check the day old rack at grocery store for croissants. You don't want to use the bake from a can kind because they are too soft and doughy. You want a large and light croissants - good deals on large quantities at Sam's Club or Costco.

4 lg Day-old croissants
3/4 c Milk
2 lg Eggs
1 t Vanilla
2 T Butter

Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Slice croissants in half lengthwise. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture coating well. Melt 1 T butter in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add four croissant halves and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with whipped cream if desired and strawberry syrup.

Strawberry Syrup:
1 qt Fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 c Sugar
1/4 c Orange Juice
1 t Grated orange rind

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and let sit for 30 minutes. Cook over low heat stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK to keep strawberries slightly firm.
