EASY Blueberry Croissant French Toast Bake is a buttery, flavorful breakfast recipe. With 5 ingredients & a few simple steps, you can have an Easy Croissant French Toast Casserole in no time!
A blueberry breakfast casserole is a great change of pace from traditional breakfast routines. It’s so easy to make that it requires very little hands-on time and it’s also a good excuse to use up dry croissants. Leftover croissant casserole means getting your money’s worth out of those flakey, buttery rolls.
What is Blueberry Croissant French Toast Bake?
This sweet croissant breakfast casserole is a mixture of cubed croissants, blueberries, eggs, and milk. Similar to a regular french toast bake but with more freshness and buttery richness thanks to the simple change in the ingredients list. Every bite is bursting with flavor and so tasty!
This recipe is NOT soggy! I opted for less eggs and milk, so the mixture is absorbed into the bread and the result is a softer french toast bake with crispy edges. It’s not dry, but again, it’s not soggy like other French Toast bakes can be.
-Croissants: We need 4 large croissants that have been cut into cubes. This will help to make it easier for serving than leaving them whole.
-Blueberries: With 1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries we can have a tasty dish. We can also use mixed berries for a nice change of pace.
-Milk: 1 1/2 cups of milk (dairy or almond milk) works great to stretch the eggs over everything and adds a creamy texture.
-Eggs: We need 2 eggs to bind this french toast bake together and give it that slight eggy flavor we expect.
-Vanilla: Just 1 teaspoon of vanilla is enough to make a difference in the flavors of this casserole. Use high-quality vanilla for an even better flavor.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8×8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In the dish, add your blueberries and cubed croissants.
In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla.
Pour the mixture over the croissants and allow to sit for 30 minutes so that the bread can soak up the mixture.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until it’s nice and crispy looking.
Serve warm with syrup, homemade whipping cream, or even dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Do you eat blueberry casserole warm or cold?
Either! While you can eat leftovers cold, the best experience is eating this casserole warm. Something about that warm feeling hitting the tastebuds just hits the spot.
Absolutely. You can fully assemble the baking dish of croissant bake the night before and cover the top with plastic wrap. Store it in the fridge overnight and let it sit on the counter for about 30 minutes before baking so that it has a chance to come back to room temperature.
