Baked French Toast

This recipe works well with any kind of bread, but a nice French bread or sourdough is perfect if you want to be fancy.  I wasn’t feeling too fancy so I just used a left over baguette from dinner the night before.  It made perfect little dippers.  (Normally though, I use Wonder Bread…like a bad mom…who doesn’t make her kids eat whole wheat bread like I should.)
Baked French Toast
(recipe adapted from http://www.cooks.com/)

Ingredients:
·        1/4 cup butter
·        4 eggs
·        2/3 cup milk
·        1/3 cup sugar
·        1 tsp cinnamon
·        8 slices of bread (more or less depending on the kind of bread)
Turn oven to 400 degrees.  Melt butter in a 10 x 15 pan while the oven is pre-heating.  Mix sugar and cinnamon.  Remove pan from the oven and sprinkle sugar cinnamon mixture evenly into the pan.  Mix the eggs and milk.  Dip the bread into the liquid mixture and then lay it on top of the buttery sugar.  Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until bread begins to brown. (I usually go about 15.)  Lift out sugar side up onto a serving platter.  Serve with warm maple syrup and powdered sugar…or whatever French toast toppings you love!
