  • 1/2 cup fine soft bread crumbs

Directions

  • Place the eggs and egg yolks in a large bowl until well blended. Pour the milk into a large saucepan and bring just to the boiling point. Stir a small amount of the milk into the eggs, then add the remaining milk gradually, stirring constantly. Stir in the cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings. Place the croissants in a deep/large baking pan and pour the egg mixture over the croissants. Lwet stand at room temperature for 1 hour or until the croissants are soaked. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 7 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325F and bake for about 1 hour longer or until egg mixture is set. This makes 6 servings.
