Blueberry Croissant Breakfast Bake

We have teamed up with Kroger to bring you the perfect Christmas morning breakfast!

When we were growing up, Christmas was such a magical time. We would always come downstairs to see what Santa brought us, then eat a delicious breakfast before opening our gifts.

This is a fun spin on a french toast bake; instead of using old bread, you actually use buttery croissants from the bakery. The texture of the croissants mixed with the sweetness of the blueberries makes this an amazing dish!

Croissant Bake 1

I picked up the large croissants at my local Kroger store (Smith’s) . . . their croissants are my favorite! So soft and buttery, especially when they are fresh. However, for this recipe it helps if the croissants are a day old because it absorbs more of the liquid mixture and tastes even more amazing!

You can prep this dish in a matter of minutes and let it cook while you spend time with your family because let’s be honest – that is the best part of Christmas. 🙂

  4. Sprinkle brown sugar and blueberries on top then bake for 30-35 minutes (or until the center is firm and fully cooked).
  5. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then cut into pieces and top with whipped cream and fresh blueberries to serve. You can also drizzle maple syrup on top.
