French Toast Bake

French Toast Bake

A favorite breakfast in our home is French Toast.  Since my husband was away on business for almost a week, I thought I’d surprise his favorite breakfast his first morning home.

Instead of making normal french toast, I decided to make a French Toast bake.  I was able to put it together the night before, and simply pop it into the oven when I got up the next morning.  Oh, does it smell a-MAZ-ing while it’s baking.  The aroma of cinnamon and sugar fill up the house.

A French Toast Bake is perfect for an Easter or Mother’s Day Lunch.  It’s great when you have out-of-town guests.  And it’s always a hit for any breakfast potluck.

I have no doubt you will enjoy this dish as much as we do!
