Really French French Toast

From St. Barths.  My granddaughter helps me make a ham-stuffed croissant topped with bananas and Grand Marnier sauce.


3 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

3 croissants, halved lengthwise

3 thin slices ham

3 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup creme fraiche (or sour cream)

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur (or orange juice)

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 banana, sliced

      The Recipe

Beat eggs in medium shallow dish.  Stir in milk.  Stuff each croissant with a ham slice and dip into egg mixture.

Heat butter in large skillet.  Fry croissants until browned, turning once.  

Meanwhile, whisk creme fraiche with Grand Marnier in small bowl.

To serve:  Place French toast croissants on plates.  Top with creme fraiche sauce, then powdered sugar, then bananas.  Serves 3.
