Overnight Peaches & Cream French Toast

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. I couldn't wait to try this recipe out! My family loved it!!! It was easy to make and you really could use any type of preserves for variety. The only thing I am going to do different next time is put some brown sugar either in the egg mixture or with the butter/topping mixture. I prefer a sweeter french toast and I felt like a little bit of sweetness was missing. But my husband thought it was perfect the way it was. But this was a winner in our household. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
  3. Mmmmm....this was such a great way to shake off the Monday morning blahs. It made breakfast feel special and quick to get on the table. I loved the butter, preserve sauce and ended up frying the toast in it. Yum! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
  4. My husband and I thought this was delicious and would defiantly make this again I can bushel peaches every year and this year I made peach pealing jelly #41035 and used that as well. I also put some of the peach juice and the peaches in the topping. Yum!
  5. Very good. Thanks for posting it.
