Mmmm…one of our favorite recipes. Start it the night before and you will have an easy, delicious and very aromatic breakfast.
PEACH FRENCH TOAST
1 c packed brown sugar
2 T reserved peach juice
½ c butter
1 quart bottled peach slices, drained (or 29oz can)
½ to ¾ loaf French Bread, chopped into 1” cubes
1 T vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste
1 ½ c milk
In a saucepan, stir together the brown sugar, juice and butter. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour the brown sugar mixture into a 9×13 baking dish and tilt the dish to cover the entire bottom. Place peaches in a layer over the sugar coating, then top with cubes French bread. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and milk. Slowly pour over the bread cubes to coat evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove the dish from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the bread starts to look toasty brown. Spoon out portions to serve. SMELLS WONDERFUL when cooking!
