French Toast Casserole
So you might be wondering... just fruit before a full day of drinking? That's what I thought too... ludicrous. We need something of substance!
I made this recipe, had one bite, and was hooked. It's easy, portable, and you can make it the night before so it doesn't get in the way of your horrible drinking habits. Sounds like my kind of recipe.
Here's what you'll need:
-a loaf of french bread or challah bread, cubed
-1/2 cup of butter
-1 cup of brown sugar
-1 tsp of cinnamon
-1.5 cups of milk
First things first, cube up your french bread. It'll make a mess using the good crusty bread, but it absorbs so much more of the egg mixture that you'll definitely want to just go for it.
Butter up a 9 x 13 ish inch pan.
Place half of your bread in the bottom of the pan.
Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle half of it over the bread layer.
Layer the last of the bread on top of that, then sprinkle the rest of the sugar mix on the very top.
Measure out the milk in your measuring cup, add in the 5 eggs and the vanilla extract directly into the measuring cup
Now pour this all over top of the casserole.
Cover with tin foil or plastic wrap and let it sit and soak overnight. The next day, just pop it in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Take it out and uncover, then cook for an additional 15 minutes to brown up the top. Hollllyyyy cow. Serve it with some maple syrup. Die.
I don't have the sweet finished product because we went and ate it too fast. But let's just say...this picture sums it up.
Sorry John, I had to.
Happy St. Patty's day!
