Breakfast casseroles have been a brunch-time favorite for years, but they often require a considerable time investment. Sunday Morning Croissant Casserole takes things as easy and as breezy as the day itself, needing only 45 minutes to make so you can set it on the table without the wait. The speediness doesn’t mean less flavor either, with fluffy, buttery croissant pieces soaked in a creamy, tangy vanilla sauce and filled with tart, bursting blueberries. Sunday Morning Croissant Casserole tastes like the clouds are parting and birds are singing from the first bite… not a bad way to enjoy the morning!
