There’s nothing quit like a soft, moist croissant. And since they are so delicious alone, why not make them into something even more amazing? French toast!
Whenever I make my trip to Costco for some bulk shopping, I always pick up a package of their freshly made croissants. I find theirs are always so much tastier and softer compared to my local grocery store bakery croissants. But obviously when buying at Costco, I am buying quit a few lol. My kids love them, but we don’t always get through the package, so at the end of the week, I like to turn them into french toast. And they are fabulous!
The berry syrup definitely makes this dish that much better. It’s so sweet and delicious with the warm savory french toast. You can use any type of berry you want. I usually always have strawberries in the fridge, so I like to make it with that, but this time I had some blackberries, so threw those in. Adjust the syrup recipe to your liking; there’s no wrong way! Also, plan to make the syrup ahead of time because it will need to sit in the fridge for at least a couple hours before serving.
