Oh yum. You won't be sorry you tried this! I could literally eat this on a daily basis if it weren't so bad for me!
1 stick (1/2 C) butter
1 C packed brown sugar
2 T corn syrup
24 small croissants
5 large eggs
1 ½ C half and half
2 t vanilla
¼ t salt
In a small heavy saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring, until smooth and pour into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Cut croissants into 1 inch pieces. Arrange croissant pieces snugly into baking dish over sugar mixture.
In a bowl whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla and salt until well combined and pour evenly over bread. Let sit for about 10 minutes, until most of egg mixture is soaked up by the croissants.
Bake at 350° 35-40 minutes, until puffed and golden.
*Best served with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
