Croissant French Toast with Maple Bacon Whipped Cream

Croissant French Toast with Maple Bacon Whipped Cream is inspired by my favorite Waikiki brunch spot. Buttery croissants are soaked in an egg and milk mixture. Crispy bacon is folded into maple flavored whipped cream.

  1. Using a mixer or a whisk and a strong arm, whisk together heavy cream, sugar, and maple flavoring until you get stiff peaks. A cold bowl and a cold whisk will help speed this along.

  3. Put a non-stick skillet over medium heat or preheat a griddle.
  4. Whisk together egg, milk, and vanilla extract then pour onto a plate or other shallow dish.
  5. Slice open your croissants and dip both sides in the egg mixture. Feel free to let it soak a few seconds.
  6. Cook your croissants in your skillet three or four minutes per side or until golden brown.
  7. Top each croissant with a large dollop of maple bacon whipped cream and a little extra maple syrup if you like.
