French Toast Bake

Perfect for Christmas Morning!

    Who is excited for Christmas? I sure am and already know exactly what I want to fill my tummy with while we open up our presents! Actually, we open our gifts on Christmas Eve…it’s the German tradition, however, I am still planning on making this Christmas Morning French Toast Bake on the 25th! This recipe is perfect for christmas morning, as you can make it the night before, leave it in the fridge overnight then simply stick it into the oven once you wake up and it bakes as everyone opens up gifts and sips on coffee…or in my case, green juice!



    Cut The Bread

    First, cut your bread into thick(ish) slices and see how many you can fit into your baking dish. I prefer using an oval shaped dish and just do one row of slices.


    Make The Custard

    Grab a large bowl, crack in the eggs and whisk well, whisk until light yellow and slightly frothy. Next, add the milk, cinnamon, sugar (or honey or maple syrup) and salt. Whisk again until combined and lump free.


    Soak The Bread Slices and Arrange

    Dip each bread slice in the custard then transfer to your baking dish. Once the baking dish is filled, pour the remaining custard over the top.


    Allow The Bread To Soak Up The Liquid

    Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight (8 hours). This is why this dish is perfect for Christmas morning!



    After the bread has soaked in the liquid, remove the plastic wrap and add some blueberries (the more the better in my opinion).

    Bake the french toast bake (uncovered) in a preheated 350F oven for 45-55 minutes.

    Top the french toast bake with maple syrup and/or powered sugar as well as more berries or nuts if desired.
