  1. Jenna, that looks so good and blueberries are so healthy! 😂😂😂Seriously that would be a treat right now. Happy Wednesday!

  2. This looks delicious and I like two things about it especially — the advance prep and that you can make it individually. Also, I like that idea of a two-serving thing instead of something so big that when you are one or two you are eating it for days! This would be a great thing to have this summer for guests at the lake.

    Thank you Jenna for a quick tasty breakast recipe. I am always wanting to try something new for breakfast and I have all the igredients except the half and half and will have to get some today. By the way, I made the Kentucky Derby bars again yesterday! They are SO GOOD! We are going up north to the cabin this weekend and this wonderful treat is going with us! Ha. This is my new “go to” recipe for a fast, delicious treat. Thank you Jenna! 😋

    YUMMY!!! I love how you scaled down the recipe, and I think the croissants sound perfect in it.

    Delicious Jenna! I’ve made a version of your blueberry French toast casserole using a baguette and almond milk. I can only imagine how decadent it is made with the croissants and half and half. 🙂
