Orange Cranberry Croissant Bake Recipe – a holiday breakfast idea with orange juice and fresh cranberries. Easy, delicious and the perfect beginning to your holiday celebrations!

Orange Cranberry Croissant Bake Recipe - Crunchy Creamy Sweet (1)

When it comes to a holiday breakfast, I want festive yet easy with a ton of flavor. This Orange Cranberry Croissant Bake is just that. All of our favorite breakfast things baked into one beautiful dish: mini croissants sliced, drizzled with 100% orange juice, topped with fresh cranberries and baked with a custard mixture.

This Orange Cranberry Croissant Bake will be the star on our holiday table. It can be prepared the day before and baked just before serving. A dusting of powdered sugar adds a touch of sweetness and a glass of orange juice served along with a plateful of this croissant bake is my idea of a holiday celebration done right.

HOW TO MAKE ORANGE CRANBERRY CROISSANT BAKE:

I used mini croissants, sliced and arranged in two layers in a buttered 9″ x 5″ baking pan. I drizzled the croissant slices with orange juice, arranged fresh cranberries and poured the milk and egg mixture over the entire dish. Once baked, the top croissant layer has a crispy, flaky top and perfectly set custard on the bottom. The cranberries pop during baking and add another layer of flavor. This dish is beautiful, festive and bursting with fresh flavors.A gentledusting of powdered sugar is the final sweet touch.

    We make a dish called POOFS. It's flour, eggs and milk and it poofs up really large in the oven. We put jelly or spreads on pieces cut like pie pieces.

    Our favorite Christmas time breakfast is a waffle and pancake buffet. We make many different toppings and sample many different flavors on our favorite pancake or waffle.
