Croissant French Toast
with Fresh Bing Cherry Sauce
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 cups pitted fresh Bing cherries
Four croissants, OK if day-old
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp. canola oil
2 cups fresh whipped cream
1/2 cup chocolate sauce
- Heat orange marmalade in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add cherries and cook for five minutes stirring frequently. Remove from flame.
- Slice croissants in half lengthwise, as if to make a sandwich. Whisk eggs, milk, cream in flat-bottomed baking dish. Lay croissant pieces in egg mixture, flipping several times as liquid is absorbed.
- Add canola oil to griddle and heat on medium flame. Cook croissant slices until golden brown on each side.
- Place bottom croissant slices on serving plates. Top with 1/2 cup cherry mixture. Top with croissant tops, add a dollop of whipped cream and finish with a pour of chocolate sauce.
