A perfect Sunday breakfast for you and your family.
1 loaf of bread (French, Italian, old challah, whole wheat rolls, etc)
1½ tsp cinnamon
1 ½ c milk
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp vanilla
½ c white sugar
¼ c flour
½ c butter
½ c brown sugar
½ c milk
2 tsp vanilla
Optional: sliced apple
- Cut bread into 1½ inch thick slices and place in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish.
- In a large bowl, beat eggs with 1 ½ c milk and 2 tsp vanilla.
- Pour egg mixture over bread slices.
- If using apples, arrange on top of bread.
- Sprinkle on cinnamon, nutmeg and 2 tbsp of sugar mixture. *
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Bake toast in oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
- In a small saucepan combine ½ c sugar, flour, and butter. Stir in brown sugar, ½ c milk (skim is fine) and 2 tsp vanilla. Cook until thick.
- Serve French toast on plate, pour on a little bit of warm sauce, and eat while still warm.
*The prepared dish can be covered, kept over night in the refrigerator and baked fresh in the morning for a fast and easy breakfast. Smells great and the sauce can be reheated in the microwave in less than a minute.
