recipe for french toast

I found a great recipe for French toast on Pinterest and had to give it a try.  The best part was that it is made the night before and just popped in the oven in the morning.  That means no cooking and no cleaning after eating :)

* This is NOT a gluten free, dairy free or sugar free recipe.  It has all the bad stuff in it and tastes oh so good.

The recipe was originally found here.

Ingredient Checklist
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)

1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf of white bread* (I only used 6 pieces)
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

1. Melt butter in microwave and add brown sugar....stir till mixed.
2. Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9 x 13 pan....spread around
3. Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla
4. Lay single layer of bread in pan
5. Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on bread* layer
6. Add second layer of bread*
7. Spoon on remaining egg mixture
8. Cover and chill in fridge overnight
9. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to one hour covered until the last 20 minutes, then uncover
10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar

*original recipe called for Texas Toast bread... I couldn't find that so I used Bimbo's White Bread

A delicious and easy breakfast for the entire family!
