Christmas Breakfast


Posted on December 23rd, by Amy in recipe box swap. 9 comments

I almost forgot! In the midst of cleaning and cleaning today – I thought about this recipe a few times but have only now gotten to sit here :) Just in case you don’t have breakfast plans for Christmas morning – I want to share our favorite.

Oven Baked French Toast

Ingredients:
1 loaf of French bread
8 eggs
1 1/2 C half & half
1 C milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 T sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of salt

Prep:
Slice bread into 20 one-inch slices. (Our local grocery sells an enriched egg loaf, made in the store. . . really good and eliminates cutting) Arrange in a generously buttered 9×13 baking dish. Layer and overlap the slices.

In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients – beat until blended but not bubbly. Pour mixture over bread slices evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Praline Topping

Ingredients
1/2 C butter
1 C brown sugar, packed
1 C pecans
2 T light corn syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Combine well. Sprinkle over French toast before baking.

Preheat oven to 350, and bake uncovered for 45 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with syrup, if you can handle anymore sugar :) This serves 12. While not diet food this is a GREAT holiday treat!
