I know the holiday season is over, but I really wanted to share a recipe that has recently become a family favorite. I found this recipe on a message board quite a few years ago, but just got around to trying it this past year when my wonderful husband made it for Mother's Day. It was so good, that we made it for breakfast Christmas morning. We plan to make this a new tradition in our house!
The best part of this recipe is that it's super simple and is prepped the night before:
Overnight Caramel French Toast
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter
2 T kight corn syrup
12 slices white or whole wheat bread
1/4 C sugar
1 t cinnamon; divided
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 C milk
1 t vanilla
1. Lightly grease a 13x9x2" baking dish; set aside.
2. Bring brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil. Remove from heat; pour into baking dish. Top with 6 slices bread; sprinkle with combined sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with remaining bread.
3. Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
4. Remove dish from refrigerator; preheat oven to350°. Bake 30 to 35 minutes uncovered. When serving, flip upside down so that the caramel goodness is on top!
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
