Decadently delicious Apple Pie Croissant French Toast, is pure buttery goodness filled with tender fried cinnamon apples, perfect for a fall brunch or special holiday breakfast. You probably won’t need lunch, this will put you in a happy place of yum! Day old croissants work best to soak up all the custard for frying to a lightly crisp outside and warm sweet apples on the inside. A little indulgent when topped with warm maple syrup, but so worth it.

I love getting those huge packs of croissants from Costco, but you kinda have to make plans to be able to use that many so they don’t go to waste. They’re so good for Chicken Salad Sandwiches too, or at Christmas time you could use them for Cinnamon Eggnog French Toast.

Croissants are much richer in taste and flakier with more layers than crescent rolls, but both are good. I like the crescent rolls for Apple Dumplings. I’ve also used them for Stuffed Party Bites there’s just so many ways you can use Croissants and crescent rolls, what’s your favorite? This one has to be one of my all time favorites!

Ingredients

    For the Fried Apples: (or you can use a large can of apple pie filling)
  • 2 large granny smith apples, honey crisp or your favorite
  • 4 tablespoons real butter, chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or apple pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    For the French Toast:
  • 4 large round bakery style Croissant rolls-sliced in half lengthwise - 8 slices (you could also use French bread or Texas Toast)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Butter, for frying and serving
  • Warm maple syrup, for serving

Instructions

    For the Fried Apples:
  1. Wash, peel and core apples and cut into about 1/4 inch slices. In a bowl squeeze lemon juice, sprinkle sugar and spices over sliced apples. Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add apples and let cook 8-10 minutes, flipping occasionally to cook evenly through.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon cornstarch to cold apple juice, mix well, and pour over apples. Stir until thickened and remove from heat.
    For the croissant French toast:
  1. Slice the croissants in half through the middle.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dunk each croissant half into the mixture so that it's fully coated, let excess run off. Set the pieces aside on a plate.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat, then melt a small amount of butter in it. Add as many croissant halves as will fit, cut-side down, cook on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes on medium heat. Check by lifting a corner occasionally to make sure they don't burn. When they're golden brown on the bottom, flip them to the other side and let them cook for another 2 minutes or so.
  4. Remove from the pan and cook the rest of the croissant halves, adding a little butter as you go. You can place in the oven on low (about 170 F.) to keep warm, while finishing up the rest.
  5. Fill with cooked apples and top with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
