Tonight, we're having breakfast for dinner! We do this at least once a month! It's convenient, easy and the kids love it. I found a really good recipe for French Toast Casserole. Here's the recipe:
5 cups bread cubes (I had one lone whole wheat bagel that I included)
1 1/2 cups milk (I substituted 1/2 cup of milk with 1/2 cup pumpkin spice eggnog!)
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp margarine, softened (I used butter)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter an 8x8 dish. Line bottom of pan with bread cubes. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, 2 tbsps sugar, salt and vanilla. Pour egg mixture over the bread. Dot with margarine. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Combine remaining 2 tbsp sugar with 1tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over the top. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until top is golden.
I can tell you that right now, my house smells like cinnamon and vanilla! It's been a cloudy, gray, cool (NOT cold) day here in Jacksonville! This is the perfect meal. No school tomorrow for the kids (although I do work)! Perhaps we'll put in a good Christmas movie tonight and snuggle on the couch in our pjs. Enjoy your evening!
