Reviews for Croissant French Toast
"Loved it although I had no idea what I was suppose to do with the white cream sauce at first. I decided place the toast in a little pool of the cream sauce and add the berries on top and the mixture with the berries and cream was like heaven."
"One of the best breakfasts I have ever had!"
"I get lots of requests to make this for Mother's Day and Christmas Day brunch. It is a family favorite."
