- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 c milk
- pinch of salt
- Baguette or other leftover bread, crust removed and cut in 1" cubes. Approx 4 cups.
Combine first 5 ingredients in large bowl. Mix well. Add bread and let sit 10- 15 min so all the liquid can absorb. Add bread to square baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 min in a 350 degree oven. After 30 min, remove from oven and make sure the middle is cooked. It should be nice and puffy.
Next add 1 tbsp of melted butter with enough brown sugar to make a liquidy paste. Drizzle on top of french toast. I also like to add frozen blueberries and pecans. Bake for another 15 minutes ( foil removed). Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
