I don’t know about your family but mine loves breakfast – for any meal. We have an obsession with breakfast ha-ha. A lot of “breakfast” meals take some time but not this one. I made this in less than 5 minutes, let it set overnight and baked it in the morning. The best breakfast ever. I would seriously love to hug the person who came up with this idea. My family and I thank you!! This would even be great for a crowd – unless your family can eat a whole pan by themselves. 😉
French Toast Bake
1 loaf of bread, diced (really any bread)
2 C milk
1 C heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinammon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 C butter
1 1/3 C brown sugar
1 C flour
Grease 13×9 pan really well.
Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom of pan. In a large bowl beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour over bread slices. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning preheat oven to 350. In a microwave safe bowl place butter, brown sugar and flour into microwave and heat in 30 second up to one minute intervals, stirring between each one, until mixture is completely melted. Pour over bread and egg mixture and spread evenly (if needed).
Bake in preheated oven uncovered for 45-60 minutes, longer depending on how crisp you like it.
Let it cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
