Ah, early mornings. How I cherish them (or try to anyways). This morning the kids and I got up and put together a French toast bake in the Cast Iron Skillet I received for Christmas (shout out to the Fiancé for a very thoughtful gift). It was easy to make but loooong to bake. So I would say it’s more of a weekend thing than a school day breakfast but when the motivation struck me…I had to act on it!
Very Berry French Toast Bake!
10 pieces of bread, cubed
2.5 cups milk (we like whole)
.5 cup water
3 tbsp maple syrup (or honey!)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
.5 tsp salt
Cut up all of that bread. There is a lot of it so it might not all fit in, if it won’t, hang onto it until we’ve gotten to the soaking!
Mix together your eggs, milk, water, maple syrup, spices and vanilla. Whisk until mixed and pour over the bread.
Let this soak for 20 minutes (10 minutes in is a good time to try to squeeze in some more bread if you didn’t just toss it out like I did).
Make it beautiful. Use frozen berries to decorate your masterpiece and toss it into the oven for 60 minutes at 350•!
Drizzle with syrup (or honey) and devour that beast. 🤷🏻♀️😍
