MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2013

I used individual casserole dishes and fit one croissant into each one. I divided the other ingredients accordingly for individual servings. I served this for breakfast. My guests loved it but it was a little sweet for me. Next time, I might spread cream cheese between the croissant halves to add another flavor, then cut down a bit on the jams. And maybe sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.

Our church made this for a Mother Daughter lunch. Everyone loved it. I can't wait to try it with vanilla ice cream. Yummy

This was totally awesome and a huge hit at Easter brunch. I substituted peach preserves for the orange marmalade and apricot preserves. My daughter-in-law loves peach cobbler and said it reminded her of that only better.
