Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; mix in eggs, salt and half & half. Add croissants and gently stir. Pour into dish; press on croissants to absorb cream mixture.

Bake for 40 minutes until top is puffed and golden and center is set. Let rest for 5 minutes. Serve warm with sauce.

Whisk butter, brown sugar and sugar in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat until butter melts. Whisk in cream and stir until sugar dissolves and sauce is smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm sauce over pudding. Store in refrigerator. To serve, microwave briefly until sauce is pourable.
