Ooooh, French Toast!

Welcome to the kitchen, Glitterinas!

I am making french toast.....but it has a bit
of a twist.....

it's baked french toast!

It is so yummy!

I love serving french toast but if I'm cooking for more than
about two people, it's hard to have enough ready
at a time.....you know?!

This recipe is perfect for a group of
french toast lovers!

I had some lovely friends 
 come over one morning
for brunch and this was on the buffet.


Sadly, all my pictures of this yummy
dish are gone....

....sigh....

my blogging assistant, Sophie, checked her files
and could not find the snaps either....


....she even checked with Jane, who was,
according to Sophie, absolutely no help at all!



Oh well, at least I can share
the recipe with you!

Baked French Toast

Ingredients:

1 16 oz. loaf of french bread
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 T vanilla

1/2 cup of butter, melted
3/4 cup of brown sugar, packed

Pecan topping:
3/4 cup chopped pecans
4 T butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
pecan halves (2-3 for each slice, optional)

Caramel glaze: 
3 T butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 T milk

Directions:
Slice french bread into 1 inch slices 
and lay them flat in a 9x13 inch casserole pan.

  Mix eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a bowl 
and then pour the mixture over the bread slices.

 Cover and refrigerate.  
Let sit over night or for at least four hours.

Mix the melted butter and brown sugar 
together and pour over the 
bread slices.

Mix pecans, melted butter and brown sugar together, 
and then spoon evenly over the top of the french toast slices. 
(Optional: I placed pecan halves on each slice.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

 For the glaze, melt the butter in a small pan, 
and stir in the brown sugar. 
Continue stirring, 
add in the milk 
and bring to a boil. 
Set aside on the stove.

 When you are ready to serve, 
drizzle the glaze over the slices of
baked french toast.

I had some warm syrup available with this
dish, however, the french toast is rather
sweet already.

Enjoy!

With all of the holiday gatherings coming up, I hope
you have a chance to give this yummy 
recipe a try!

Thanks for stopping by, Glitterinas!

Have a fabulous day....



With hugs and glitter,
Tammy
