You can fully assemble the entire casserole the night before. This way it is ready to bake in the morning. You can place it in the oven while the oven is preheating, just make sure to take of 5 to 7 minutes off the baking time
Or you can take it out the refrigerator and let is sit on the counter while the oven preheats. Then transfer it to the oven while you finish getting ready.

- In your baking dish, add the croissants in layers. You can cut them in half or thirds if you prefer, but I like keeping them whole for easy serving sizes.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs, heavy whipping cream, salt, sugar, and brown sugar until combined
- Add half of the blueberries in between the croissants (It's ok if some go on top, but I like them tucked away too)
- Pour the egg mixture over the croissants
- Transfer the baking dish in the oven on the center rack. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until eggs are cooked
- When the casserole is completely baked, add the remainder of the blueberries to the top of your casserole. Then cut strawberries in half and add to the top
- Serve the Croissant French Toast Bake when warm and top with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
