Welcome back to another edition to Foodie Friday! We made a menu plan this week for the first time in quite a while - and we did a fairly good job of sticking to it! It feels good to cook and eat at home - I was definitely getting tired of eating out so frequently! This week's post is the meal we had on Wednesday night - French Toast Casserole with bacon!
I found the recipe for the French Toast Casserole on page 90 of a little cookbook I found at the Hallmark store - Cooking Together: Recipes for Parents and Kids.
French Toast Casserole
1 (16 ounce) loaf cinnamon raisin bread, cubed - *I used Cinnamon Swirl bread!
6 large eggs, beaten - *I used egg beaters!
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Layer bread cubes evenly in greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Pour mixture over bread cubes. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Bake 50 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm, topped with syrup.
I have made this recipe several times and it never disappoints! It would even be great on Christmas - make it the night before and just pop it in the oven when you get up!
And we use Center Cut Oscar Meyer bacon - it is delicious and lower calorie (all things considered). Yum! And Katie told me that my bacon tasted as good as when Daddy makes it - that is a true compliment!
Hope you have a great week! Stay tuned for more fun posts coming up soon! Happy Friday!
