I am always looking for ways to save money and use up things I have in my house to make dinner. I knew last night that today was going to be a long day and I would not want to trying to figure out what I could make for dinner . I figured I would plan ahead and took a look around my kitchen. I found I had 2 loaves of bread that were a few days old but not moldy. I hate throwing away food so I decided French Toast was in order. We are in the middle of a near winter freeze and the stove being on would help to add warmth to the house. However, I knew I would not want to be standing over the stove making 2 loaves of French Toast. I have a teenage son so yes I would need almost all of that. I decided to whip up a French Toast Bake and have it ready to throw in the oven today. It smelled so great it filled up the whole house and no one was complaining about the extra heat with the temperatures dropping to -35 tonight.
This Oven Baked French Toast Recipe is very easy to make and takes no time at all to whip up. My kids love to help with everything but their favorite part is tearing the bread up for the base of the Oven Baked French Toast. Continue reading
