Peach French Toast Bake

Recipe by The_Swedish_Chef

This is a stunningly simple and delicious recipe from The Food You Crave cookbook. I have copied exactly, the books version but we make it slightly different at our home. I've used artisan loaves of bread: raisin/pecan; apricot/almond; and other fruit/nut combinations for the bread. Then, instead of the combination of egg whites and whole eggs, we just use the entire egg and 2% milk. I have found that there is NO difference between the hard-to-find frozen peach slices and drained, canned peaches so we now use canned. I've also made this with a combination of fruit: canned peaches and apricots, just one of the fruits or sauteed Granny Smith apple slices with butter and Applejack Brandy added to the saute pan. This is a hearty and beloved recipe at our home and extremely easy to adapt to your taste and calorie needs. It can also be cut in half and made in an 8" x 8" pan with the same great results.

Cut down to 2 slices bread, 1 DelMonte fruit cup, 1 egg, dash brown sugar and cinnamon, and sugar free maple syrup. Nice to wake up and throw this in the oven for an easy treat. I will be trying this with other fruit variations. Makes any day seem like a holiday. Thanks for sharing Swedie. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
