Try this for breakfast....

Wednesday already!  Wow!  The week is really passing quickly!

I have no memory of where I found this recipe.  I really should be better about making those notations on my recipe cards.  At any rate, this is a real treat!

2 extra large croissants
1/2 cup blueberry preserves (I used Polaner).
3 large eggs
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat 9-inch square baking dish with no-stick cooking spray.  Cut croissants in half lengthwise.  Spread each half with about 1 Tablespoon of the preserves.  Replace tops.  Cut into small strips.  Place in prepared baking dish.  Using small spoonfuls, dab remaining preserves on top.

- Whisk eggs.  Whisk in sweetened condensed milk, water, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon until blended.  Pour over cut-up croissants.  Press larger pieces down into the liquid.  Let set 5 minutes.
- Bake 45-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 15 minutes.  Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar or maple syrup.
Slices in  baking dish.

Ready for the oven.

Finished - and ready to enjoy!

Another hot day is ahead here!  Keeping cool is the order of the day!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.
