Flaky buttery croissants are covered with juicy blueberries, cream cheese and coated with cinnamon and sugar to create one scrumptious morning treat! This Blueberry & Cheese Croissant Casserole may become a new family favorite!
The great thing about this breakfast casserole is the fact that you can make it the night before. I don’t know about you but I enjoy sleeping in in the morning whenever I get the chance. I was able to make this sensational casserole for breakfast and still get my beauty sleep!
I love using croissants in this casserole because of their buttery flaky texture. The combination of cinnamon, sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice definitely put the flavor factor over the top and the creamy layer of cream cheese had me digging in for seconds and if I’m being completely honest…thirds!
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Wouldn’t Mom love to wake up to this special breakfast?
