Overnight Peaches & Cream French Toast

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Marie

This sounds so good, although I haven't tried it yet. An egg mixture of peach preserves and half and half is poured over French bread and refrigerated overnight. When cooked, it is topped with a peach butter mix, then sprinkled with toasted almonds. To complete the presentation, sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

I made this this morning for a family brunch. I did not have any peaches but I had Polander apricot All Fruit and a can of apricots. So used them instead. I also did not have the bread last night, so I made it this morning and baked it rather than frying. Baked at 350º for approx 1/2 hour. Well, everyone loved it! Wish I took a picture but since I will definately be making again, I will remember next time! :-) Oh...almost forgot, I also used about 1/2 t of apple pie spice in the 1/2 & 1/2 mixture.
