Featured Recipe: Baked French Toast

Today’s featured recipe is Baked French Toast. While I listed this recipe under main dishes, I gotta admit it may be more appropriate under desserts. But I’m going to continue to think of it is a main dish so I can have it for dinner once in a while.


A few quick notes on this recipe. This last time I used Brioche bread and it was PERFECT for this recipe. Also, pecans are by far my favorite nut to use in this. Not much else to say except it’s mighty delicious. Oh – and sorry there’s no picture of the final product… I forgot to take one, but the ingredients sure are pretty!

Recipe type: Main Dish, Breakfast
Ingredients
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ⅓ C butter
  • 2 T corn syrup
  • Chopped pecans, almonds, whatever
  • 2 t. orange zest
  • ½ C OJ
  • ½ C milk
  • 3 T sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 eggs (or 4 eggs)
  • A bunch of slices of bread (probably 12, give or take – depending on the size of the bread, enough to fill the cookie sheet)
Instructions
  1. For the bread, I love to use a loaf of brioche (which is pictured here). Sliced french or italian bread would work, too. But a nice rich, soft bread like the brioche is my favorite.
  2. Mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Spread with nuts on cookie sheet and lay slices of bread on top. Mix rest of the ingredients and pour on top of bread. Sit for 1 hour in fridge. Bake 350 for 35 mins.

    So I tried this recipe yesterday and it was awesome! I mean I can’t stop raving about it or craving it. Super easy and delicious. It made a lot. Initially I was scared about how it would reheat for the next day. But, what started out as breakfast turned into lunch, and dinner desert. Thank you!

    Hey! Guess what I just noticed? You don’t list bread in the ingredients for this recipe. Hee hee! Of course, everyone could figure that out, but I thought I’d mention it. Based on the photo, did you use regular dinner rolls or are those Hawaiian sweet bread or something like that?

    Thanks!
