I can’t believe that the 1 year anniversary of my blog has come and gone. And I forgot about it! What a bad blog mommy I am :-( Anyway, I am still chugging along. I wish I could post more often, life has just been so busy lately! I’m hoping that now that I’ve settled into my new job that I will find more time to post. I do have a question though…can you (the readers) leave me tips on how to gain more traffic/followers? My goal is to have a worthwhile audience without having to “sell” myself out just to gain followers ;-) Thanks!! Now on to the recipe.
So there’s not much to say about this dish except that, well, it’s AMAZING!!!! And convenient. And DELICIOUS! And you will want to eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time too! So go on you say? Tell us the recipe? Ok I will! You should make it as soon as possible. No kidding. Do it.
“Do Ahead” French Toast
1 loaf egg bread (challah)
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp confectioner’s sugar
Coat 2 13x9x2 inch baking dishes with nonstick cooking spray.
Slice bread into 12 equal slices, about 1 inch thick. Arrange slices in prepared dishes.
In a large bowl, beat eggs, half and half, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt.
Pour mixture over bread, dividing equally.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350° when ready.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar until combined.
Spoon evenly over the bread slices.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned and heated through.
Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve warm. Heaven in your mouth :-)
Makes about 12 servings.
