Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 2/ Day 3

Theme: Kid’s Delight — Holiday Specials

Dish: Baked French Toast

We all love French toast in our house. I have tried quite a few variations of French Toast recipes before, but this baked overnight French Toast recipe is something I tried recently with a friend for our Holiday brunch party.

We usually have pot lucks for most of our get-togethers and for the holiday brunch party I hosted, one of my friends suggested this Praline topped Overnight French toast by Paula Deen. She said she ate it at one of her friend’s house and it was delicious. She sent the recipe over and we both made it together for the party. We actually put everything together the night before, which, by the way, only takes about 5 minutes and we spent the next 2 hours chatting 🙂 The next morning I baked it off in the oven, just before everyone came.

But that recipe has nuts that my picky 7 year old is not too happy with, so I skipped them and added some chocolate chips. I also used less eggs and sugar from the original recipe and it tasted great. Prepping overnight makes it so much easier in the morning, but it doesn’t take too long to prep in the morning either. It needs to soak for a little bit, so plan accordingly.

I used wholewheat French bread for some added fiber and nutrition and the French toast tasted great, couldn’t even tell that I used wholewheat bread.
