Make-ahead raspberry breakfast bake is perfect for lazy mornings
Weekend breakfasts call for something special. Usually that means someone standing in front of the stove, though, for almost an hour, either flipping enough pancakes or making enough waffles for the entire family to enjoy.
This breakfast bake not only combines deliciously creamy whole milk, buttery croissants and fresh raspberries, but it's completely prepped (in 10 minutes) the night before and just baked off in the morning. Wake up a half-hour before the kids, pop this into the oven, and everyone will be eating a weekend-worthy breakfast in just minutes.
