You won't be able to resist a second slice of this delicious blueberry croissant breakfast bake!
Breakfast and dessert are my two favorite meals of the day. Wait — dessert isn't a meal is it? Well, you know what I mean.
On weekends I like to treat the family — and myself — to special breakfasts. Sure scrambled eggs and toast are great for busy weekday mornings. But weekends call for something more exciting.
Blueberry Croissant Bake
You are going to love this blueberry breakfast casserole recipe. It is very easy to make, with minimal prep time required.
I like to prepare breakfast casseroles the night before I plan on serving them. That way, in the morning I can pop the dish right in the oven.
But if you would like to prepare this recipe the morning that you will be enjoying it, that works too. Just be sure to let it sit for 30 minutes in the fridge before baking it. Letting it sit is important because it gives the croissants time to soak up all the liquid.
Top with a dollop of whipped cream and some powdered sugar for a real treat.
This blueberry bake is so sweet and indulging that you could serve it for dessert as well. It is kind of like a cross between french toast and bread pudding.
Whether breakfast, snack time, or dessert, your family is going to go wild for this recipe. It is that good.
