I love this easy prepare the night before recipe. The bread soaks up all the moisture and makes a delicious puffy french toast when fried the next morning!
- 8 slices French bread (3/4-inch thick)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- Arrange bread in a 9X12 pan.
- Beat eggs; blend in remaining ingredients.
- Pour mixture over bread; turning slices to coat evenly.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Fry in skillet over medium heat.
VERY YUMMY! All the other overnight recipes I found you had to bake 30-40 in the morning after letting it come to room temperature for 30 mins. Which is not going to happen on a school day for me, I need my sleep :o) I did tweak this just a bit.
I omitted the OJ
used evaporated milk in place of the regular milk
I used approx. 2tsp. of vanilla ( I poured it in didn't measure)
and I only used 3 eggs I was afraid of getting the "eggy" french toast. 3 eggs worked perfectly for me. Great recipe when I have left over french bread we will be having this in the AM for breakfast.
My kids loved it even my child who refuses to eat breakfast in the morning.
I love this because it is so easy and doesn't require baking in the oven. Simple ingredients, too. Thank you for a recipe we plan to enjoy again (tomorrow, in fact)!
