five ingredient friday

Baked Mock French Toast

My family loves this because it's tasty, I love it because it's easy to make. It's not the same as pan-toasted french toast but it's still delicious.

bread
eggs
milk (we use vanilla soy)
fruit
sugar (we use sucanat)

In a greased cooking pan (let's not count that as an ingredient, okay?) lay out bread
How many slices? However many fit in the pan. An 8 x 8 square will hold 4 if you squish 'em.
Mix together eggs and milk enough to cover bread.
How much? For the 8 x 8 pan I use 2 eggs and about 3/4 C. milk
Cover with plastic and set in fridge overnight
In the morning preheat the oven to 350
Unwrap the pan and sprinkle sliced/diced/whatever fruit and sugar on top of bread mixture
Bake approximately 20 minutes until done
Serve and enjoy

This sounds fantastic! I think I'll add cinnamon to the recipe when I make it. What type of fruit do you like to make yours with?

Thanks for participating in my Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange today! :)

That kinda reminds me for my grandma's bread pudding. Can't wait to try it out.

It is also wonderful if you "stuff" them. Make cream cheese sandwiches and then pour the egg mixture on top and bake. Then top with fresh strawberry sauce. I love your recipe as well. French toast of any kind is a favorite with my boys.

I like to use blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or peaches the best. But the fruit is up to you. I would think that even dried fruits could be used if you reconstituted them a bit before adding.
