|We got a little excited to eat! That's why I'm showing you the pretty side!|
I love breakfast. On the days that I have to eat cereal or toast, I cringe. Now, I will warn you, this is not for the health nut. It's pretty caloric. I just love that it can be made ahead, and baked the morning of, for a delicious hot breakfast.
French Toast Bake:
1 loaf Sourdough or Texas Toast bread
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup milk
Melt butter and mix into brown sugar. Mix and pour into a 9x13 baking dish. Crack eggs and whisk. Add milk and vanilla to egg mixture. Add a layer of bread onto brown sugar mixture. Pour half of egg mixture onto bread. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar, and a light coating of brown sugar on top. Add second layer of bread. Pour rest of egg mixture on top. Cover and put in fridge overnight. *Make sure you pull it out of the fridge while your oven is heating up* Hot oven+cold dish=No bueno.
You can sprinkle some extra cinnamon and sugar on top, and add pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered. *All ovens vary, watch it, and it might get done sooner depending on your oven.* Next time I make it, I'm going to cook mine at 330 degrees for less time. My oven runs hot.
Are you going to try it? Do you think it is easy? Please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought!
