This French toast is just decadent. I like it so much better than the fried kind. Plus it is super easy, requires very little morning work, and no standing over a hot stove. And, because it is so easy, it makes a perfect holiday breakfast. It is really hard for me to believe, but the holidays really are just around the corner, and I like to plan ahead. This will definitely be on the menu. Hope you enjoy!
Overnight French Toast
- 1 13 oz. loaf French bread, cut into 1 to 2 inch cubes (It can be day old.)
- 8 eggs
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 Tbsps. sugar
- Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray.
- Arrange the bread cubes in the dish evenly.
- Beat together eggs, milk, and vanilla.
- Pour over bread trying to get some on each piece.
- Toss bread to coat.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Take French toast out of the refrigerator.
- In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- While the oven is preheating, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
- Drizzle French toast with melted butter trying to get some butter on each piece of bread.
- Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until set in the middle. If the top of the toast begins to brown too quickly, you can lay a piece of foil over the top to stop the browning.
