Baked French Toast

Posted by Dennis 20/06/2019 0 Comment(s)

I love this! It’s a cousin to French toast made on the griddle. But you assemble it up to five days ahead and stick it the oven. The guests arrive or the kids come down the stairs. It’s absolutely yummy and absolutely no work on your busy morning.

 

Baked French Toast with Caramel Sauce

 

 

This makes a scrumptious breakfast or brunch, perfect for the holidays or for guests. It’s not difficult and chances are, you can make it from the ingredients you have on hand.

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 8 slices white bread

  • 5 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor

  • 1 teaspoon butter rum flavor (or use a second teaspoon of vanilla)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Directions

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. On the stovetop, melt the butter. Add the corn syrup and brown sugar and continue heating until the sugar has melted and the mixture is smooth. Spread the hot syrup in a 9 x13-inch pan.

  3. Arrange the bread slices in a layer in the baking pan, squeezing the bread to make it fit.

  4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, flavors, and salt together.

  5. Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Place the completed dish in the refrigerator overnight or up to three days.

  6. Bake for 40 to 445 minutes or until the eggs are set and the toast is a pale golden color. Invert slices onto plates and serve hot.

 

Melissa’s Overnight Baked French Toast

 

 

This recipe is one of Melissa’s favorites. It’s a soft French toast made by layering the bread and egg mixture in a baking pan the night before and baking it in the morning. It’s almost a bread pudding layered with caramel syrup.

 

This is “bed and breakfast good”—and so handy. Because you mix it up the night before, it’s easy to make on a busy morning. We’re so glad that she shared this recipe with us.

 

This baked French toast is made up the night before in an 8 1/2 x 13-inch pan. In the morning, you just pop it in the oven. Let it bake while you are getting ready for the day and you’ll have a wonderful breakfast for your family.
