This usually happens during the weekends, when I have a bit more of time to cook something that my family loves, and during the past couple of months I found myself making this French Toast Bake every Sunday when it finally hit me that I should share it!

And it’s not only super delicious but it’s also incredibly easy to make! Actually, it’s one of the easiest breakfasts I’ve ever made and it looks just straight out of a magazine for foodies or from an elegant cafeteria. Another great thing is you can make the French Toast Bake with day-old bread, which is definitely great if you are trying to save some money or come up with creative meal solution for leftovers.

I prefer to make it with crusty bread since the end result is prettier but if you only have sandwich bread go with it, the result is just as good! Just cut your bread, make an egg and milk mixture dip your bread, place in the baking dish and take to the oven. It’s around 10 minutes of active time and it’s something the kids love to help with.

Once it’s golden brown on top I serve it in dishes with some berries and maple syrup, but you can make it with different toppings and mix and match.

  3. This looks really yummy. I have trouble making french toast. Seems like the bread won’t turn into the custard that I crave. This pan idea might work perfectly.
