French Toast Bake

Happy New Year! We had some leftover french bread from doing fondue on NYE so I was looking for a recipe to use it up and found this one from All Recipes. It was perfect! Easy to make and a delicious use of the rest of the bread.

French Toast Bake


Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Approximately 8 ounces of french bread, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon (to sprinkle over top)
  • Brown sugar (to sprinkle over top)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Grease a 11" x 7" baking dish
  3. Put the 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup of brown sugar in a small saucepan on medium-low heat. Stir until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved into the butter.
  4. Pour the brown sugar butter mixture into the bottom of the baking dish.
  5. Whisk milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a medium bowl. Add the bread to the mixture and stir so that every piece of bread has been soaked in the mixture. 
  6. Put the bread (and any remaining milk-egg-vanilla mixture) in the baking dish. 
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar over the top.
  8. Bake until browned and bubbling, between 25-30 minutes. 
  9. Serve with fruit or whipped cream or just eat by itself.
