RECIPE OF THE MONTH
December 2021’s recipe of the month is our overnight french toast bake. This french toast bake recipe is made with delicious sourdough bread and other delicious brunch ingredients. It is the ultimate comfort brunch food that we guarantee the whole family will love!
Ingredients You Need
Below are the ingredients you need for this overnight french toast bake including the ingredients for the delicious streusel topping.
- sourdough bread
- full-fat Greek yogurt
- maple syrup
- ground cinnamon
- ground nutmeg
- milk (any kind)
- white whole wheat flour
- brown sugar
Use Quality Bread. The bread you use can make or break this overnight french toast bake. We highly suggest using a quality and fluffy sourdough loaf that will soak up all the milk and egg but not disintegrate.
Make sure the ingredients are well mixed. Mix all of the ingredients together and use your hands to press the bread into the casserole dish so that the eggs are covering all the ingredients.
Don’t skip the refrigeration. Refrigerate the french toast bake for optimal flavor and to create a tender inside and a crispy top.
Don’t add too much liquid. Your baked French toast may turn out if you add too much dairy and eggs. Be careful not to overdo it.
Get into the toppings. Jazz up your french toast bake and make it your own by adding your favorite toppings. You can top your french toast bake with maple syrup, fresh fruit, yogurt, or even nut butter.
