    Recipe Introduction

    This was absolutely delicious and so easy. Even better than French toast and no custard to mess with. I really smushed them down and they got wonderfully crisp. If you look at the picture online, it is obvious that they didnít smush them down and that looks great, too. Honestly, I just didnít pay attention to the photo. I made half the amount of honey butter and it was more than enough. I didnít have any orange marmalade, so I just used FROG jam.

    List of Ingredients

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for the pan
    1 tablespoon local honey
    1/2 vanilla bean
    1 croissant, split (day old is fine)
    Orange Marmalade, for serving
    Powdered Sugar, for serving


    Mix the butter, honey, vanilla caviar, and a large pinch of salt.

    Melt butter in a non-stick skillet large enough to hold both halves of the croissant over medium heat. Place the croissant halves into the butter and brown well. When browned flip over and brown the other side. Place on a serving plate cut sides up and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

    Serve with the marmalade and honey butter. Store any leftover honey butter in the fridge.
