Blueberry Croissant Puff

I made a big batch of this great blueberry croissant puff this morning for Anita to take to work. It disappeared so fast it made my head spin. A little sweet and a little tart, it’s definitely a great breakfast casserole that is a bit different.

This blueberry croissant puff was very easy to make. Our grocery store didn’t have large croissants, so I used mini croissants instead. For extra yummyness, substitute a little cream for the milk.

If you’re looking for the best recipes for breakfast all in a single cookbook, I cannot recommend John Currence’s Big Bad Breakfast: The Most Important Book of the Day enough!
