The Hunchback of Notre Dame Inspired Recipe: Croissant French Toast!

Hugo - Hunchback of Notre Dame

"And since you're shaped like a croissant is."

What you'll need

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (for buttering pan)
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-5 regular sized chocolate croissants
Helpful Tip: Can't find chocolate croissants? Cut each croissant in half horizontally and fill with 1-2 tablespoons of chocolate chips before placing in pan and covering with egg mixture.

Prepare recipe the night before and cover with foil. Allow to sit on kitchen counter for 10 minutes to warm up before baking in the oven.

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch cake pan and set aside.
  2. Place croissants into prepared cake pan in a circular pattern, overlapping them slightly.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour mixture over croissants and press croissants down slightly so that they can absorb most of the egg mixture. Place the pan in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Bake until all of the eggs are cooked and top is a light golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into wedges. Top with butter and syrup if desired or eat as is.
