Classic French Toast with mini croissants

A lazy Sunday brunch doesn't get better than this! A classic breakfast item, French toasts are so simple to make, yet so delicious. My grandmom used to make these for us when we were kids as an evening snack. The perfect French toast has a little crunch when you bite in but is slightly moist from within. It should not be soggy and falling apart. Last Sunday, I wanted to make this decadent treat, but was out of bread and only had a bag of mini croissants on hand. Since I was in no mood to run to the shop I decided to make do with the croissants. And they turned out to be yummy!

  • Mini croissants - 8, sliced in half length wise
  • Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Egg - 2
  • Sugar - 1 tbsp + 1 tbsp to sprinkle on top
  • Salt - a big pinch
  • Nutmeg - 1/8 tsp
  • Allspice - a pinch
  • Cinnamon - 1/8 tsp
  • Cardamom - a big pinch
  • Butter - 1/2 tbsp

  • Break eggs into a wide bowl and whisk gently.
  • Stir in the milk, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and cardamom, combine well.
  • Heat a griddle over medium-low flame, lightly coat with butter.
  • Dip the croissants in the egg mixture for a few seconds and coat both sides, drain the excess egg mixture before placing on the griddle. 
  • Cook the french toast for 2 minutes or until golden brown, flip to the other side and do the same. 
  • Remove to a warm plate, lightly brush butter on both sides. Sprinkle the remaining sugar and serve hot.
