Dessert for breakfast?  Yes please!

I work at an office during the week and I never get up early enough to enjoy a good breakfast. My Mom always made breakfast for me when I was younger, sometimes she used to make us bolillos (Mexican bread) toasted with butter and sprinkled with granulated sugar. I decided to give it a spin and make croissant French toast sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Here’s the French toast recipe which is good for two people.


2 croissants cut in half (1 used almond croissant and a regular croissant from Porto’s bakery)

1 egg

¼ cup of milk

Vanilla extract

Granulated sugar and berries for topping

Unsalted butter for cooking


1. Place egg in a bowl with milk

6. Place in skillet until nice and brown. I like mine toasted so I leave them a little longer. Turn and cook on the other side.

7. Sprinkle with regular granulated sugar and serve with berries or any fruit you prefer.

Here is the regular portos croissant, I know it’s not the healthiest breakfast but it’s definitely worth the calories every now and then. ¡Buen provecho!
