Happy New Year!
13 is a luck number in our family
so we are very optimistic about 2013!
Today is very low key here. Absolutely nothing on the agenda! We did have a great breakfast though and I thought you might like the recipe.
Have you ever visited Our Best Bites? They have some really good recipes. That's where I found Overnight Baked French Toast .
I made a couple of small changes. Sorry I didn't take pictures before it was all gone! Here is my version:
Overnight Baked French Toast
(original recipe from ourbestbites.com)
3 cups skim milk
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 lb loaf of french bread
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons cold butter
Butter bottom and sides of a 9×13 baking dish.
Cut bread into 1" chunks and place in pan.
Whisk eggs and milk together. Whisk in brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and vanilla.
Pour egg mixture over bread and gently toss to be sure all bread is mixed in. Spread out evenly, cover dish, and place in fridge overnight.
Topping: Mix sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Cut in butter. Cover and place in fridge until morning.
In the morning: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove covering from baking dish and sprinkle topping evenly over top. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until top is golden brown.
You can stick a knife or skewer in the casserole to make sure the egg mixture is set on the bottom.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting into squares.
Drizzle with melted butter and syrup
Or top with berries and whipped cream
Or sprinkle with powdered sugar
