Start Thinking about Weekend Breakfast

This is the BEST EVER brunch food. It is a Baked French Toast and it is fab-u-lous!!! OMG! Sooooo good. I made it this past Sunday when some friends came over. It is really so simple to make. You get most of it ready the night before and then the next morning you add a little more, put it in the oven and then walluh....complete ooey, gooey goodness!!! You've got to make it this weekend for breakfast. I promise you 100% you will LOVE IT!!! Here's what you do.

Cut a french bread loaf diagonally into pieces (about one-inch each). Butter a 9x13 pan and then place the pieces of french bread in the pan. In a large bowl mix 8 eggs (yes, that is right 8 eggs!!!), 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 cup half-n-half, 3 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Whisk it up really well and then pour over the french bread pieces. Cover the pan and place in the refrigerator over night. Below is what it should look like.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, melt 1 1/2 sticks of butter (yep you read that correctly too!), three tbsp. light corn syrup, and 1 cup brown sugar. bring to a boil and then remove immediately and pour over the egg and bread mixture. Put in the oven for 40 minutes, remove and eat! When it comes out of the oven it will be all puffed up, it's okay, it will go down in a little bit. Below is the yummy picture. Mmmmmm....I bet you wish you could smell it. Stop licking your computer screen. :)

OMG!!!! It is so good. My mouth is literally watering right now just thinking about it. It is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. You can put it in the oven and then have a quick and so simple breakfast that will really fill you up until lunch time.
