This cream cheese croissant french toast bake is an awesome way to get your weekend going. It can be prepped over night and bakes in a little under an hour.
This is one of those recipes where you’ve come back from Costco, and thought to yourself “What am I really going to do with this bulk supply of croissants?”

But the moment you cut in and see how moist it still is on the inside, you’ll thank yourself for not second guessing the cook time!
The cream cheese and jam marries together perfectly in the oven along with the fresh fruit is really a great treat for brunch or even for.. oh I don’t know.. whats tomorrow? Mother’s Day!
My wife usually requests a dutch baby, but I thought, we could have a little pre mothers day breakfast with this croissant french toast bake.
Yes, this is fresh off the press. The dish is still on the table as we speak!
And can you believe this didn’t pass the picky kid test? I knew the cream cheese was a questionable choice, however tasty it was for the adults.
The first thing Brayden asks, “What’s this white stuff?!” with a disgusted face. Not even a try, just scraps it off an moves on! Well, there’s always cereal on deck.
