  • In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk and almond extract together.
  • In a skillet, melt 5 ml (1 tsp.) of the butter on medium heat and brown the almond slices for 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside on a plate. Place the skillet back on the heat and melt the remaining butter.
  • Dip the bottom sections of the croissants in the egg mixture, coating both sides, and drain. Cook in the hot skillet for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, cut side up.
  • Garnish the croissants with the peaches, cheese and almonds. Keep hot in the oven preheated to 165oC (325oF).
  • Dip the top sections of the croissants in the egg mixture, coating on both sides, and drain. Cook in the hot skillet for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove croissant bottoms from the oven. Drizzle with a little honey and top with the other half of the croissant. Serve.

Storage

  • The fried croissants will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Assembling the dish must be done just before serving.
