It was several years ago that my sister first introduced us to this yummy breakfast dish.
It is now a staple at our family reunions. Actually – I’m not sure we’d let Teresa come if she didn’t bring some! 🙂
So… when it was my turn to host my husband’s family a few weeks ago – I got the recipe and made it for them.
It was a rainy, cold and dreary morning. But the recipe was so fast to make that Aunt Julie and I had the toast in the oven and smelling delicious as everyone made their way to the table.
It was a huge hit and it sure brightened that morning!
Oven French Toast
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
12 slices Texas toast
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together the melted butter and brown sugar. Spread it evenly over the bottom of a greased 11 x 17 inch baking pan.
Lay the Texas toast over the butter and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl mix together the milk, eggs and vanilla. Pour evenly over the toast and bake at 325 degrees for 1/2 hour.
When the toast is done, carefully remove each piece from the baking dish with a spatula and invert it to the serving platter or plate.
These can be served with maple syrup, or fresh fruit, but I love them hot out of the oven – all by themselves!
