Way, way way back in 2010 I posted a recipe for Overnight French Toast…..without pictures! Can you imagine? This is such an awesome recipe and in my house it’s a breakfast favorite for all special occasions; first day of school, birthdays, overnight guests, Christmas morning, and most recently, my son and his gal came home from college for a couple of days.
OVERNIGHT FRENCH TOAST
In a small saucepan, melt ½ cup butter and mix with 2/3 cup brown sugar and some cinnamon (the amount is your choice. I like lots!). Pour into the bottom of a 13×9 or 15×10 inch pan. Place thick sliced bread over the top of sugar mixture (as many as you can fit, make it snug). Mix three eggs and ½ cup milk. If using a 15×10 pan increase the milk to 1 ½ cups. Pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Let pan come to room temp or put in cold oven. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. To serve, flip each piece over onto plate sugar side up. Oh and it is yummmmmyyyyy!
A couple of hints from making this many years……Do not use sourdough bread. I’ve used both French and ciabatta and its better to slice your own bread. I prefer one slice to be at least as thick as two pre-sliced pieces of bread combined.
Overnight French Toast tastes great alongside a bowl of fresh strawberries and crisp bacon. Be sure to make 2 pans – it won’t go to waste. Here’s a hint. After breakfast leftovers are best stored by fliping the pieces over so the sugar side is up before refrigerating.
Share it with your family! Do you have any food traditions?
