  • Strawberry Baked French Toast

    My friend Sharon gave me this recipe years ago.. don't know where she got it from.. but it's always gone in a nano-second at brunch-time!

    1 16 oz french bread - cubed
    8 oz. cream cheese - cut (you don't need it put it in if you family doesn't like it)
    6 eggs
    4 cups half and half (I have tried 2 cups 2% and 2 cups 1/2 & 1/2.. but I'd rather have the 1/2 and 1/2.. )
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    1 t. vanilla
    1/8 t. cinnamon
    1/8 t. nutmeg
    1/4 cup maple syrup (pure is best)
    2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced. (you can substitute blueberries)
    1 - 10 oz jar strawberry perserves (or blueberry perserves)

    Spray a 9 X 13 pan with non-stick butter spray

    Line bottom of pan with french bread cubes

    Cut cream cheese into small pieces and place over bread (NOTE: You CAN leave this out if you family doesn't like cream cheese!)

    Beat together eggs, 1/2 & 1/2, butter, spices and maple syrup.

    Pour over bread.

    Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours)

    In the morning make sauce by simmering perserves and fresh fruit, until warm. Drizzle a small amount over french toast.

    Keep the rest of the strawberries warm.

    Bake in 350 oven, COVERED for 25 min, UNCOVERED for 20 mins. more.

    Take out of oven and allow to rest for at least 5 min.

    Serve heated strawberries on the side. (or whatever fruit of your choice)
