  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, milk, and salt until combined. Add croissants; toss to coat. Let sit, turning occasionally, until they have absorbed some of the liquid, about 10 minutes. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish; smooth top with a spatula. Scatter with almonds.

  • Bake until pudding has puffed up and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving with whipped cream, if desired.

This recipe was absolutely delicious - my favorite new recipe! I modified it by adding diced peaches, a teaspoon of almond extract and sprinkling cinnamon on top with the sliced almonds. It was wonderful served warm; however, it was great days later and warmed in the microwave - didn't even need the whipped cream.

I don't usually care for bread pudding but I needed a good recipe for my family. Fantastic recipe. I add some golden raisins and substitute pecans for almonds. Very good.

Will try this. I may spread some jam on to croissants proir to soaking and see how it goes. I make a traditional bread and butter pudding and usually it calls for jam... I use strawberry or apricot. YUM!!!
