Easy French Toast Brunch Ring

Whip up this make ahead French toast for your next girls' brunch!

Ingredients

Filling

1
(8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/4
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Crescent Ring

1
cup milk
4
eggs
1
tablespoon vanilla extract
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
can (8 ounces) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
Powdered sugar, whipped cream, fresh berries and maple syrup, as desired for serving

Directions

  • 1 Using an electric mixer, beat together the filling ingredients until whipped and fluffy.
  • 2 In another clean bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  • 3 Unroll the crescent dough sheet. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border around the edges.
  • 4 Starting with the long side of the rectangle, roll up into a log and then pinch the edges to seal.
  • 5 Using a serrated knife, cut the log into 12 slices. Place the slices in a gallon-size zip-top bag or 9x13-inch glass baking pan. Pour the egg mixture over the rolls; seal the bag (or cover the pan with plastic wrap) and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • 6 When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • 7 Remove the pastry from the fridge and arrange the slices in a circle on the prepared cookie sheet. Brush any remaining egg mixture left in the bag over the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 8 Serve the French toast ring warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired. You could also add a little whipped cream too!
