This baked French toast recipe is one of my favorite for a special breakfast or brunch. We frequently have it as “breakfast for dinner” also (like we did last night). This quick and easy recipe is also a healthy makeover, by baking instead of frying and adding fresh fruit. I also find it convenient that the whole meal cooks in the oven, so I’m free to spend more time with my family, instead of standing in front of the stove and cooking the french toast in batches.
I hope you enjoy this special breakfast recipe as much as we do.
