I love breakfasts that you can get together the night before or in advance and then pop into the oven on Christmas morning. This one is perfect for just that. Assemble this before you go to bed on Christmas Eve and then pop into the oven while you are opening presents Christmas Morning. The smell will be amazing.
Baked French Toast
1 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
6 TB butter
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 TB light Corn Syrup
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
8 thick slice French Bread (raisin bread would be great here too!)
Spray 13x9 inch glass baking dish with Pam. (A cooking sheet would work great here too!)
In a sauce pan combine all topping ingredients and heat until smooth. DO NOT BOIL!
Spread the topping in the pan or cookie sheet. Here you could add nuts. I love it with Pecans but The Tortured Teenager is a nut hater!
Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla and salt together.
Dip the bread into it (as you do for regular French toast)
Pour whatever egg mixture is left over the bread (I did not have very much)
Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.
I snuck some blueberries in between the bread. They would have been great in the caramel topping too!
Bake 400 degrees 25 minutes till bubbly and golden brown. Let stand a couple of minutes before serving.
You will not need syrup for this (or my brats dont!)
