Blueberry Croissant French Toast served at the Old Parkdale Inn B&B, in the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of this Mt. Hood B&B.
This Blueberry Croissant French Toast is a perfect breakfast entrée for both spring and summer, and super pretty when topped with fresh Oregon berries. We’ve made it with Strawberries – Strawberries and Cream. And will make it with peaches for a Peaches and Cream French Toast come August when the peaches ripen in the Hood River Valley.
Let the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of the comfortable Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast be your lodging alternative to a hotel or motel in the Hood River Valley. And maybe if you ask ahead they’ll treat you to this decadent Blueberry Croissant French Toast.

Cut up cream cheese into small pieces and place them on top of croissants. Put half the blueberries on top of cream cheese. Layer other half of torn croissants on top, then the rest of blueberries. Beat eggs, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour egg mixture over croissant mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, scatter pecans over french toast. Melt butter & add brown sugar to it to make a glaze like mixture. Drizzle mixture over french toast. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50- 60 minutes. Watch carefully last 10 minutes to make sure pecans don’t burn. If getting too dark, put some foil lightly over french toast to stop browning. Makes 8 generous portions.
