Blueberry & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Croissant Bake
Easter weekend is here and it is time to bust out the brunch recipes. I am bored with pancakes, french toast and egg casseroles....but this recipe? Now this is what I am talking about.
Buttery croissants mixed with fresh berries and topped with a cinnamon cream cheese glaze...um yeah, sign me up. Wait, what was that?...You can make this the night before?! Oh, I am so ds SOLD.
To prepare this amazing bake, first lightly coat a 9x13 inch dish with non stick spray.
Next, arrange a layer of croissants evenly in the baking dish and cover with a layer of berries.
In a large measuring cup or glass bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup, lemon zest, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Pour the mixture evenly over the croissants and berries.
Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least two hours...or if you are me, overnight.
When you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 350.
Remove plastic wrap and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Combine all the ingredients for the glaze into a small bowl and stir until smooth.
Drizzle that sweet sauce all over your bake, serve and devour!
And there you have it. A delicious, indulgent Easter-perfect brunch item to really set your menu apart this year.
What will you be serving on Sunday?
