Merry Christmas, lovely people! I hope today finds you happy and healthy and surrounded with family and friends. And food. Lots of yummy food!
You know I typically like healthy, whole food recipes. But balance is the spice of life! This morning, my family kicked things off right with this easy baked French toast. The recipe theoretically serves 9-12, but the four of us ate the whole pan. 😳 We weren’t stuffing ourselves by any stretch, either. So plan on using a super deep dish and doubling, or use a denser bread than wonder bread. Ha!
riginal recipe is an overnight French toast recipe from GeniusKitchen.com, but we prepared and baked the whole dish right away and skipped the overnight part with no problem. If you use a denser loaf of bread, you may want to prepare it and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Or, if you'd rather not fuss with everything in the morning, you can layer and prepare everything the night before, then pour on the egg and milk mixture before it goes in the oven in the morning. Either way, expect this recipe to poof up in the oven quite a bit. It will flatten once removed from the oven during resting time.
