*THIS IS A REPOST THANKS TO A REQUEST FROM READER (and friend!) Pam* …have you ever purchased the 1.00 French Bread Loafs at Walmart? I get one everytime I go in there (they are quite a bit more at Albertson’s, however, sometimes you will get a coupon for a FREE one on your Albies receipt, you just have to do a quick survey.) Anyway – These cheap bread loaves make a quick and yummy breakfast, which I usually prepare right after I put my groceries away because it stores overnight in the fridge and you just take it out and bake it in the morning. It is called
OVERNIGHT FRENCH TOAST….and it is YUM.E.
I got the recipe off of SouthernFood on About.com. I am always looking for cheap, healthy (somewhat), homemade and yummy…especially for breakfast.
Here is the recipe:
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
12 3/4-inch-thick French bread slices (I just slice up an entire loaf)
6 eggs (I actually use 3 yolks and 6 whites)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Overnight French ToastFor the french toast:
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature 12 3/4-inch-thick French bread slices 6 eggs 1 1/2 cups milk 1/4 cup sugar 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt confectioners’ sugar Spread butter over bottom of large baking pan (jelly roll pan) with 1-inch-high sides. Arrange bread slices in the pan. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, syrup, vanilla and salt in large bowl; whisk until well blended. Pour egg mixture over bread. Turn bread slices to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 400°. Bake French bread 10 minutes. Turn bread over and continue baking just until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes longer. (I actually cook ours for almost 30 minutes…we like it more golden) Transfer cooked French toast to plates and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Serve hot, with maple syrup or your favorite topping. (we use berries/powdered sugar/syrup)
