Preparation

Step 1

Split the croissants in half through the middle.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Dunk each croissant half into the mixture so that it's fully coated. Set pieces aside on a plate.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat, then melt a small amount of butter. Add as many pieces as will fit, cut side down, then increase the heat very slightly (don't go above medium-low).
Allow the toast to cook on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes. Move it around in the skillet a bit to make sure it doesn't burn. When it's deep golden brown on the surface, flip it to the other side and let it cook for another 2 minutes or so.

Remove from the pan and cook the rest of the croissant halves. Serve a top and bottom piece together with a layer of the cinnamon cream cheese, butter, warm syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream.
