Yummy French Toast Bake

Welcome welcome! Today I want to invite you over for breakfast.

Seriously, friends I wish I could have you over for breakfast because this dish is amazing! Ever since Matt I got married years ago, french toast has been his favorite breakfast meal. He also is exceptional at making french toast. He swears by adding a splash of vanilla and a sprinkle of nutmeg. I doesn’t matter how many times I’ve tried, he still just makes it better… until I tried it as a bake… a french toast bake.

Yummy French Toast Bake

I hosted a breakfast for a few ladies yesterday and I made this delicious breakfast treat. I am usually not a fan of sweets for breakfast but this yummy french toast bake is one exception. My girlfriends really enjoyed it as well! My favorite part about making this dish is that you make it ahead of time and refrigerate overnight. It was great to be able to wake up and toss in the oven with no morning clean up.

I won’t waste anymore time here, I know you must be drooling at this point. Allow me to share the recipe…

Ingredients:

1/2 cup melted butter (plus a few additional pads of butter for the top)

1 cup brown sugar

12 slices of Texas Toast (crust cut off, optional)

4 eggs

1/2 cups milk (I used fat free)

1 tsp vanilla

sprinkle of cinnamon

sprinkle of white sugar

Instructions:

In a small bowl, stir brown sugar into the melted butter and set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, and vanilla together.

Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with non stick cooking spray and cover the bottom of the dish with half of the brown sugar and butter mixture.

Add an even layer of Texas Toast pieces to cover the dish (six slices).

Pour half of the egg and milk mixture evenly over the bread.

Spread the rest of the sugar and butter mixture over top.

Then top with another layer of Texas Toast and egg and milk mixture.

Place a few pads of butter over top and sprinkle with some cinnamon and white sugar.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350. And bake for 45 minutes. Serve with powdered sugar, and fresh strawberries.
