  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray glass baking dish with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Add croissant pieces to egg mixture; toss until well coated. Add cranberries; gently stir into bread mixture until evenly distributed. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish. Cover securely with plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350°F.
