So, a while back, maybe in 2003 or 2004 Paul wanted French toast and I didn't have any bread except some leftover croissants - I thought, why not? So I did :)
It's not too difficult. Slice the croissant where the tips come together all the way to the back but not through, like a hot dog bun :) Make your basic custard to dip the croissant into. I use eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, pinch of Kosher salt and cinnamon as an after thought. Open croissant up and dip both sides in custard then griddle on both sides. Fold back together again and then you can put whatever you want in the middle like stuffed french toast.
We used fruit, homemade syrup and a cream cheese filling. For the cream cheese filling, I used: 8 oz cream cheese way softened, 6 oz creme fraiche, 1/4 cup sugar and a touch of vanilla and pinch of salt. Mix up. Yum!
