Easy Baked French Toast

Easy Baked French Toast

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 12 slices of day old bread (preferably about 3/4 inch thick)
Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish with a generous amount of butter.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, salt and milk, half of the sugar.

Place the the bread slices in the prepared baking dish in a single layer (it's okay if you have to squeeze them in). Pour egg mixture over the bread. Turn the bread slices over once or twice so they are completely coated. Cover and let set at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the bread.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Top each serving with butter and maple syrup, jam or just a little powder sugar.

You get the best results if you use a grainy artisanal breakfast like sourdough or a French baguette.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

Was a little too soggy. Flavor was great, almost had a bread pudding/flan flavor. I would attempt this again because it was so easy but I would cut the milk down to 2 cups and see what happens.

I took a few liberties with this recipe. I changed the amount of milk to about 1 1/4 cup, only added 2 eggs and used a little less sugar. I also dunked the bread in the mix and then put it in the baking dish. It turned out pretty good. I did use some leftover home-made bread for this, and the slightly thicker than normal slices may have helped as well. All in all, I would reccomend this as an "idea" recipe. Gives you the idea, gives you the ingredients, but on a whole you are better off doing your own thing.... especially if you have baking/cooking experience.

This recipe calls for too much liquids. It is a waste of time using this recipe.

Pretty good... I attempted to hurry it up using my convection oven feature and it was a little uneven, but that is totally my fault. Husband thought it had a nice egg nog flavor... I used half and half with some top quality vanilla. Basic bread this time, but will use french/thicker bread next time.

Way too much milk in this recipe. I baked for an extra ten minutes and centers of bread were like eating wet bread. Too mushy!!!

An interesting change from the frying pan or grill. Great method for the kid's, easy on Mom. Nice flavor as is, no problem altering to individual tastes.
