1 package of Charcutnuvo Organic Breakfast Links sliced into medallions
12 medium croissants torn in half
6 to 8 oz of blueberry preserves
8 oz of cream cheese cut into cubes
Lemon zest from large lemon
1 ½ cups of milk
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon bourbon
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter, sliced into cubes
Maple syrup and fresh blueberries for serving
Grease a 9×13 baking dish with oil or butter.
In a large bowl mix together eggs, lemon zest, milk, cinnamon, almond extract, vanilla extract, bourbon, and salt. Dip the croissants into the mixture and make sure they are coated well.
Cover the bottom of the baking dish with half of the croissants, then top those croissants with cream cheese, blueberry preserves, and sliced breakfast sausage. Top with the rest of the croissants, then pour the remaining egg mixture over the top layer.
Cover with aluminum foil and chill in the fridge for 30 min – 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 F.
When ready to bake, place sliced butter on top of croissants. Place in the oven and bake for 20 min.
Loosely cover with foil and bake for another 20-30 min. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with fresh berries and maple syrup. Enjoy!
