Tuesdays At The Table - Baked French Toast

Ah, I love Tuesdays! My mouth waters and my stomach rumbles just reading your recipes. :-)

Good news! I've heard from Andrea. She's moving along in her pregnancy, and I'm hoping that she doesn't mind that I'm telling you that she's heard the baby's heartbeat. Isn't that AWESOME?!?!


French toast is one of my favorite foods; I think I could eat it every day. This is a little twist on it.

Baked French Toast

2 loaves of day-old bread (enough to fill a 9×13 pan; I recommend French or something similar)
3 cups milk
8 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Slice or tear bread and layer in 9×13 baking dish. Let it sit for a while so it drys out a little more. Beat together the eggs and milk. Then add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and mix well. Pour over bread slowly, making sure all of the bread gets covered and is soaking up the wet mixture. Cover the pan and set it in the refrigerator overnight.

1 stick softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix together butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Then stir in chopped pecans. Remove the pan from fridge and spread this evenly over the top. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. Remove from oven and let settle for about 10 minutes; slice and serve.

What's cooking in your kitchen?


  1. I love baked french toast. This is pretty much a tradition at our house for Christmas morning. The version I make has apples in it as well. - It's like french toast with fried apples. Yummo.

  2. Believe it or not French Toast is one of my fave breakfast dishes and the pecans make it extra delish. I love also stuffed French Toast
