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