Baked French Toast

This has become a favorite breakfast treat at our house. My mom first made it for us when we were visiting and my son asks for it when ever Grandma is in town. the recipe says to make it with a loaf of french bread but we have also made it with a loaf of homemade white bread with great results. I like to eat it with a little milk poured over the top!

Baked French Toast

In a saucepan, heat together the following ingredients until it bubbles, and then set aside;

1 c up brown sugar

1 stick ( 1/2 c) butter or margarine

2 Tbs white corn syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

In a bowl mix together;

5 beaten eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1 tsp sugar

Generously grease or spray a 9x13 pan

Layer bottom with 1 diced loaf of french bread. (or homemade bread)

Drizzle brown sugar mixture over the top

Sprinkle with nuts if desired.

Pour egg mixture over the top

Press bread pieces into the egg mixture. You can refrigerate over night or bake right away.

Bake at 350* for 35 min. or til golden brown.

No need for syrup as it is already baked right in!
